Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation
110 North Carolina Avenue, SE
Washington, DC 20003
The Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) is seeking a Mid-Atlantic States Coordinator to co-manage the state sportsmen’s caucus effort organized under the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses (NASC) and the Governors Sportsmen’s Caucus (GSC) programs for the Mid-Atlantic Region of the United States.
Since 1989 the Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation (CSF) has maintained a singleness of purpose that has guided the organization to become the most respected and trusted sportsmen's organization in the political arena. CSF's mission is to work with Congress, governors, and state legislatures to protect and advance hunting, angling, recreational shooting, and trapping. The unique and collective force of the Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus, the Governors Sportsmen's Caucus and the National Assembly of Sportsmen's Caucuses, working closely with CSF, and with the support of major hunting, angling, recreational shooting, and trapping organizations, serves as an unprecedented network of pro-sportsmen elected officials that advance the interests of America's hunters and anglers.
The Mid-Atlantic States Coordinator will serve as the lead contact for state sportsmen’s caucuses, governors’ offices, state fish and wildlife agencies, industry partners, and non-governmental organizations in five states. The successful candidate will work a traditional work schedule Monday-Friday in CSF’s Washington, DC office, though evening and weekend travel will be required at times. This is an entry level, full-time, salaried position with a generous benefits package and provides a career track with room for advancement.
