We seek an experienced government relations professional who shares our mission, understands Minnesota’s environmental laws, and knows how to make change at the Minnesota Legislature. The Legislative Director works with MCEA staff to help create a strategic legislative agenda and is responsible for implementing that strategy at the Minnesota Capitol. We also seek to create greater engagement with our legislative agenda among our supporters. Experience mobilizing grassroots support for legislative initiatives is highly desirable.
MCEA has been the scientific and legal voice for Minnesota’s environment since 1974, and one of our strongest assets is our credibility with legislators, regulators, and the public. The Legislative Director is the voice for MCEA at the Minnesota Legislature and must be able to maintain and enhance this credibility in testimony and interactions with legislators and staff.
