I want to commend whoever wrote this job description. It is the most 
*honest* executive director job description I've ever read. (I've been a 
"Program Coordinator" for a non-profit, but in reality had executive 
director responsibilities in that position. That's why I read the job 
description and also admire it.) The author also gets points for the use 
of "Emoluments" in it. I hope all the lexicographers on the list have 
grabbed it as a cit/instance.
