Lunches With Rich People

The Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation is looking to add an Outreach Manager to the crew. Old Town location (fairly close to the water, at that) – and we'd like to think that you'll get to go to some pretty good trade shows, too. Apply by Mar. 20.

Babcock & Wilcox seek a Manager, Government Programs for lobbying activities related to government/military energy issues. Extensive experience with national security, energy and environmental matters before the Congress and Executive Branch are a must. Search here, via DC location, if previous link inoperative.

The NAACP is in the market for a Deputy Communications Manager to help guide communications strategy, draft op-eds & press releases, and manage media events. Campaign experience and excellent writing skills are among their wants for the position. They also have a recent opening for an Associate Director of Development, as well as other program, web & admin jobs listed (although several appear to go back to last year).

Speaking of older positions – we previously referenced several of these DC-based communications/advocacy opportunities with global health advocates PATH. Seattle-based communications & new media jobs also available.

Association Headquarters
has opportunities for association Executive Director & Chief Staff Officer types at their Mt. Laurel, NJ redoubt. Fellow association management firm Smith-Bucklin offers a DC based Associate posting, as well as a healthcare-oriented Executive Director placement in Chicago.

A large DC trade association – allegedly involved in the most exciting industry* – has an awesome Administrative/Customer Service opportunity for some eager beaver ready for the 7:30 am – 4:00 pm shift. Brought to you by the Trak Companies. Awesome.

The Catholic Legal Immigration Network seeks resumes by Apr. 17 for their Executive Director position. The ideal candidate will have extensive expertise and/or experience in: immigration law and policy, as well as familiarity with and commitment to social justice and Catholic teaching.

DRI Consulting is leading the search for Vice President of Development (note: pdf link) for the Trust for the National Mall. Their ideal candidate will have a great attitude and ability to secure outright gifts of $10 million or more; you’ll need to haul in more than a few of these if you expect to meet their aspirations of $500 million over the next five years.

Life at the United Nations Foundation seems pretty sweet to us. And, so does this Director of Foundation Relations gig – longer description here (note: pdf link). You’ll cultivate relationships with foundation program officers and decision makers and other grandees, and actively solicit and negotiate gifts. Frankly, the whole thing sounds like a lot of lunches with rich people.

The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom was created by the International Religious Freedom Act of 1998 to monitor the status of freedom of thought, conscience, and religion or belief abroad. Two opportunities are available to join in their efforts: Senior Policy Analyst (focusing on Afghanistan, Pakistan & India) and Communications Specialist.

Do you have plans to motor West? Maybe you could be Dell’s Western US State Government Affairs Manager, helping keep track of state and local government affairs in key Western states – including state and local appropriations, sales and procurement support and education policy issues. We’re not sure of your exact somewhere-out-west location for this job, however. If previous link fails, try this one, and enter job number 0900020E or keyword government relations.

Our job miner's resource for the day - yet another general job search engine:

* I suspect my opinion would be different than theirs. Unless this is some kind of association involving jet packs, college football or roller coasters.
