The League to Save Lake Tahoe is searching for a dynamic, detail-oriented, intuitive, and analytical environmental professional to support our Policy Team through coordinating political relationships and conducting policy analysis and legislative tracking. No plan, project, or program happens in Tahoe without the League’s involvement. The successful PPC candidate will step right into the flow and be positioned to immediately make an impact.
This position will assist the Policy Team in building key legislative and agency relationships, tracking legislation, and conducting policy research. The PPC will also maintain key relationships with targeted legislative and agency staff; plan and execute lobbying tours and events; track updates and movement of all relevant environmental plans, policies, projects, and funding opportunities for Lake Tahoe; and ensure that League executives and Policy Team members are informed and up to date on environmental issues.
This position will report to the Policy Director.
Professional experience in some combination of natural sciences, planning, environmental management, policy development, and political lobbying/grassroots campaigning is optimal for success in this position.
Our world-renowned “Keep Tahoe Blue” call to action is both the symbol of an increasingly important environmental mission and an intentional, sustainability-focused lifestyle. Founded in 1957, the League is the oldest and most successful environmental organization focused on protecting and restoring Lake Tahoe’s health and beauty. We have a strong internal culture of trust and respect that supports and guides our decision-making and planning for the future.
The League has embarked on a thoughtful DEI journey that focuses on delivering our programs and services in a culturally mindful manner that centers and lifts a wide array of partners and supporters. Our work environment is collaborative, respectful, and inclusive, with a focus on building allyship and a sense of belonging that empowers all team members to show up as their full selves every day. Come to learn, grow, and succeed while sharing your passion for protecting one of America’s most treasured regions.
The League has a hybrid work structure that does not require employees to be in the office daily. However, based on the nature of this work, we ask that this position be based somewhere in the Tahoe Basin.
The PPC is the administrative backbone to all Policy Team internal and external planning, meetings, priority and success tracking, and policy briefs. Duties often include:
$60,000 – $75,000 DOE
