State Operations Regional Manager
The Climate Action Campaign is a highly effective, unbranded coalition of national climate, conservation, and progressive groups, state and local partners, and key allies working to protect clean air and promote action to limit climate change. The Campaign serves as the center of gravity for defense of federal climate policy and the convening point for traditional and non-environmental advocacy groups supporting climate action and clean energy policy at the local, state and federal levels.
The State Operations Regional Manager’s primary responsibility is to support the Regional Director in management of multiple state programs and target-related activities, maintain strong relationships with state partners, assist in the development and oversight of state strategies and tactics, and ensure that these strategies and tactics align with the Campaign’s national goals.
• Program Oversight and Staff Management: Coordinate with the Regional Director to oversee state-based coalitions in key states in their efforts to recruit, cultivate, and activate grasstops supporters, generate grassroots actions, host high-visibility press events, place targeted opinion media, and organize in-district and Capitol Hill visits to key lawmakers.
This is achieved through regular conversations and meetings with state partners, quality control checks of activity reported, use of QuickBase and other reporting tools, and engagement of field organizations’ National Field Directors.
• Strategy Development: Work in collaboration with the Regional Director and regional cross-departmental teams in the development of compelling target-specific strategies and ensure alignment with national campaign goals. This includes drafting plans and concept memos, participation in quarterly planning meetings, and coordination with state partners on ladders of engagement.

Additionally, the Regional Manager will be the first point of contact for reimbursement and other special requests from state partners and will assist in the scheduling and facilitation of meetings, preparing agendas and materials, and taking notes.
• Three to five years of experience in issue-organizing, advocacy, or electoral campaigns including generating earned media (i.e., op-eds, editorials, and stories in print and radio), supervising organizers, volunteer activist development and management.
• Proficient computer skills; word processing, spreadsheets, ppt, web-conferencing, Internet, and social media.
• Ability to successfully prioritize and manage multiple projects in a fast-paced, high-expectation, shifting campaign environment.
• Demonstrated ability to work strategically and as a team player and to develop trusting relationships with a variety of key constituencies.
