CCA California Seeks to Fill Two New Key Job Positions
The non-profit conservation organization plans to ramp up staffing
in the fields of advocacy, communications, chapter development and more
The Coastal Conservation Association of California (CCA CAL) aims to bolster its work on critical conservation and angler-access issues in the state by adding two key staff positions—an Assistant Director and a Director of Advocacy.
“The amazing efforts of CCA CAL on behalf of the coastal sportfishing community are growing today at a fast pace, as are programs benefiting anglers,” said Doug Lasko, president of CCA CAL and Okuma Fishing Tackle. “It’s imperative that this work continues, and adding these two positions will help ensure that CCA CAL moves forward stronger than ever.”
For the Assistant Director position, CCA CAL is looking for a self-motivated individual to direct volunteer and local chapter activities, oversee fundraising and membership development, contribute to social media marketing campaigns, and work with middle management and executive leaders in creating and presenting written, in-person and electronic presentations.
The Director of Advocacy position will include the attendance and representation of CCA CAL at public meetings held by government agencies such as the California Fish and Game Commission, Pacific Fisheries Management Council, California Coastal Commission, and California State Legislature, as well as local agencies. The director of advocacy will also work with CCA CAL Government Relations Committee and the group’s full-time lobbyist in the California State Capitol to achieve CCA CAL’s advocacy goals.
Both of these positions will require proficiency in technologies such the MS Suite and Google Suite and the effective administration of virtual meetings, webcasts and more. For full descriptions of both positions and instructions on how to apply, visit ccacalifornia.org.
