Of Meter Maids & Meter Men

Fresh from the halls of justice – the American Association for Justice, to be precise – a fast-paced Press Secretary opportunity – emphasis on delivering earned-media with DC-based bureaus and nationwide. Note: this group was known as the American Association of Trial Lawyers until 2006.

New opportunities with the freedom of expression/religion/and-more advocates at People for the American Way:
Perhaps at least one of you would be interested in knowing that the City of Alexandria compensates Parking Enforcement Officers in the $29k-$48k range. At least you’re not tied to a desk.

Need to go just a little higher on the career-prestige ladder? How about Vice President, Government, Community & Public Affairs with Johns Hopkins University – in Baltimore, of course. Isaacson-Miller helms the search.

Enjoy a unique opportunity to establish work processes for this newly defined position – hey, that does sound fun. Really. Office Services Coordinator, Inspections OfficeArlington County Government – $40k-$66k – requirement include: developing and implementing administrative procedures in a government environment; supporting a Board, Commission, or similar governing body – and it beats writing tickets, we suspect.

Unknown start-up affirmative disclosure organizationExecutive Director – can be based in Chicago, or elsewhere – TalentMarket knows more about it.

They’re not listed under new vacancies (a handful of payroll/accounting jobs are), but the surely American Petroleum Institute would still like to see your sterling resume for Washington Associate/Federal Relations (updated Oct. 6, they say). The updated July 28 tag on their Communications Advisor/Writer listing gives us pause; further investigation is encouraged. EDIT: API apparently updated the page at some point yesterday, so that new vacancies bit no longer strictly applies.

How could you not aspire to a lofty title like Senior Director, Public Relations and Thought Leadership (job ID 42371 or Arlington, Va. location) with the Corporate Executive Board? Extensive PR/communications experience/smarts desired.

The College of American PathologistsLegislative Assistant for State Affairs – duties include state legislative and issues research, state legislative tracking, assisting in advocacy execution, and developing and maintaining state pathology society meeting information.

From the US Chamber of Commerce (yes, the real Chamber):

The deadline is moving ever closer. Our ecosystems, our climate, and everything that depends on them are at a tipping point … and apparently they expect you to reverse this course as Executive Director of ecoAmerica. We’ll be pulling for you.
