NORTHERN SIERRA PARTNERSHIP CAMPAIGN MANAGER
- Hi everyone,
I'm an RPCV from Cameroon. I currently live in San Francisco and work
for the Nature Conservancy. My organization has created an alliance
with several other organizations in a collaboration to conserve lands
and waters in the northern Sierra Nevada. We are currently looking for
a campaign manager for this collaborative effort. The position will
NOT be under employment of the Nature Conservancy, but rather of the
partnership. The person will be working from their house - so location
is not important, as long as they are in California. It is a good
opportunity to network among these organizations though. If you have
any questions please send me an email. We are looking to fill this asap!
(don't email my yahoo address on this; i don't check it very often).
