Now in its second century, Audubon is dedicated to protecting birds and other wildlife and the habitat that supports them. Audubon’s mission is engaging people in bird conservation on a hemispheric scale through science, policy, education and on-the-ground conservation action. By mobilizing and aligning its network of Chapters, Centers, State and Important Bird Area programs in the four major migratory flyways in the Americas, the organization will bring the full power of Audubon to bear on protecting common and threatened bird species and the critical habitat they need to survive. And as part of BirdLife International, Audubon will join people in over 100 in-country organizations all working to protect a network of Important Bird Areas around the world, leveraging the impact of actions they take at a local level. What defines Audubon’s unique value is a powerful grassroots network of nearly 500 local chapters, 23 state offices, 41 Audubon Centers, Important Bird Area Programs in 50 states, and 700 staff across the country. Audubon is a federal contractor and an Equal Opportunity Employer (EOE).
Reporting to the Vice President of Communications at the National Audubon Society, the Grassroots & Chapters Communications Manager will be responsible for developing and implementing a comprehensive, network-wide, dynamic, and inspiring Network communications strategy aimed at communicating Audubon’s priorities, priority shifts, and executive decisions to Chapters and Centers across the organization. In addition to partnering with key Audubon departments on organization-wide chapter communications, s/he will be responsible for overseeing the strategic development, writing, and editing of key communication projects and platforms for chapter and Center engagement.
