Jun 18, 2018
Full time
The Chesapeake Bay Foundation seeks a Director of Community Engagement and Marketing to be based at its Philip Merrill Environmental Center headquarters located in Annapolis, MD. About the Chesapeake Bay Foundation Established in 1967, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) is the largest regional nonprofit conservation organization dedicated to saving the Chesapeake Bay, its rivers and streams, and the wildlife that call it home through education, advocacy, litigation, and restoration. Since 2010, CBF has engaged in a focused effort to defend and implement the Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint, a binding federal and state collaborative agreement aimed at reducing pollution to the science-based, legally-affirmed levels established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The Blueprint is expected to be fully implemented by 2025. If the states and the federal government achieve Blueprint goals, the Bay will finally—after decades of failed efforts—be removed from the Clean Water Act’s impaired waters list. Successfully implementing the Blueprint depends on a well-informed, engaged, active, and diverse constituency of members, advocates, and volunteers who speak up and take action to save the Bay. CBF has a staff of approximately 185 employees working in offices in Annapolis, Maryland; Richmond and Virginia Beach, Virginia; Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; and Washington, D.C. as well as 15 field education program locations. Our staff and volunteer corps work throughout the region educating students and adults, advocating for clean water policies, restoring waterways, and litigating when necessary. CBF's headquarters office in Annapolis, Maryland is the Philip Merrill Environmental Center, the world’s first U.S. Green Build Council’s LEED platinum building. In 2014, CBF opened the Brock Environmental Center—one of the world’s most energy efficient, environmentally smart buildings—in Virginia Beach, Virginia. CBF has an annual budget of approximately $26 million and is supported by more than 240,000 members and e-subscribers. For more information on CBF, please visit cbf.org.

Develop and implement a strategic marketing plan designed to elevate CBF’s profile with key audiences including the next generation of supporters. -Lead community outreach branding efforts potentially including tabling events, fairs and festivals. -Manage communications and marketing efforts related to corporate or other donor branding opportunities in close coordination with Development Department staff.
