Volunteers of America
seeks an experienced GR professional to serve as Vice President of Public Policy – a job we previously referenced in December. However, it appears to have been “modified Mar. 1” (you’ll see that if you poke around) – so perhaps it’s still fresh. Also available: Admin Assistant, Volunteer Services & Public Policy.

The Environmental Defense Fund would like to hire a Managing Director, Regional Programs to oversee ocean-related policy issues.

Winning hire will manage communications initiatives including trade shows, special events, PR/media, executive communications, advertising, web content/promotion, and direct mail.

The American Diabetes Association needs a Senior Director of Development. Ten years fundraising experience and success in grant seeking, annual giving, major and planned gifts, and/or corporate giving should be on your resume.

Multiple opportunities available – management, communications & web-oriented – with KARAMAHMuslim Women Lawyers for Human Rights. For more background, here’s their site.

Probably a little more of a sales and promotion-related opportunity than our usual offerings, but maybe one you DCPA+CJ loyalists would be a good Director, Marketing Communications for Reston’s Harmony Information Systems. They claim to be the leading provider of software and services solutions for the health and human services profession, so you’re job is already half-accomplished, it would seem.

Here’s a recent (posted Mar. 3) offering from Bristol Myers SquibbAssociate Director, Government Affairs (search DC location). PAC management appears to be priority one for the prospective AD; grassroots and coalition-building work are also part of the equation.
