ESSENTIAL FUNCTIONS

The Campaign & Policy Manager will oversee our clean energy and climate justice work. The impacts of our energy production – particularly climate change – are directly impacting communities here in Virginia, from increased flooding and rising sea levels along our coast to higher rates of asthma in our cities. This is a defining issue of our time and we must act with the urgency the problem demands.

– Watchdogging state policy changes and their impacts on clean energy and climate justice;

Strategic Campaign Facilitation
– Working with partners to develop multiple state-based campaigns to advance state-based clean energy and climate justice policy; this can include regulatory, administrative, and legislative strategies;
– Facilitating VCN’s energy workgroup and associated campaign teams. This includes working with partners to set agendas for calls, identifying and empowering partners to take on campaign leadership, sharing regular updates on priority issues, and meeting one on one with partners;
– Providing support to Network Partners to implement campaign strategies and tactics, including specialized campaign plans, issue briefings, talking points, and action alerts;
– Organizing and providing a driving force behind campaign implementation, including opinion editorials, educational briefings, and other outreach;
– Recruiting new partner groups to join VCN by engaging them in climate and energy campaigns;
– Communicating and coordinating with non-partner strategic allies with shared clean energy and climate justice priorities

Advocacy
– Acting as VCN’s lead advocate in the General Assembly building on clean energy and climate justice issues;
– Helping to lead VCN’s Legislative Committee, including tracking legislation, developing positions for and against bills each Legislative Session, and communicating those positions to stakeholders and elected leaders;
– Developing and maintaining strong relationships with policymakers year-round, including state elected officials, state agency staff, and Administration leadership;
– Connecting Network Partners to policymakers;
– Being a vocal advocate and spokesperson for Virginia’s environment, for VCN, and for its Network Partners

In addition, the Campaign and Policy Manager will work with the rest of the VCN team towards our shared organizational goals around diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice.

This is a full-time, salaried position based in Richmond, Virginia. The position reports to VCN’s Executive Director and is viewed as a leadership position within the broader environmental movement in VA. The position requires working outside of the typical business days a few times a month and regularly when the General Assembly is in session.
