In close collaboration with the Executive Director and staff, the Organizer will develop science-based, strategic, publicly-accessible materials, develop outreach activities (including presentations to groups, public forums, and training workshops) and events to build public awareness, manage and grow CHB’s base of active constituents, coordinate strategic coalitions, and mobilize the public and organizational allies.
The Organizer will develop an innovative volunteer engagement program that includes, for example, beach cleanups and storm drain marking events. The Organizer will develop, publicize, and manage volunteer events; serve as the public face for CHB’s volunteer events; and hire and manage interns. Further, the Organizer will be responsible for the organization’s long-term community building goals and will develop strategic partnerships; coordinate and serve as the public face of CHB for outreach and community engagement events; and be the point person for public communications.
This work will involve developing relationships with community and organizational leaders, scheduling meetings, facilitating productive group conversations, tracking meetings and follow up actions, training the public, researching and writing clear and compelling communication pieces, juggling multiple projects with competing deadlines, event planning, and public speaking. The Organizer should understand how environmental issues intersect with social issues in order to develop strategic coalitions with communities and stakeholder groups who’s work intersects with our goals to reduce fossil fuels, prevent toxic contamination of Commencement Bay, and improve air and water quality in Tacoma.
