      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).

      The Northern Sierra Partnership is a unique alliance of two local land
      trusts, a regional sustainable business council, a national land
      conservation organization, and a worldwide conservation organization —
      all of whom have agreed on a cutting-edge, strategic approach to
      conserving the globally significant lands and waters in California's
      northern Sierra Nevada.

      The partners — the Feather River Land Trust, Truckee Donner Land
      Trust, Sierra Business Council, Trust for Public Land, and The Nature
      Conservancy — already have an impressive record of success in local
      conservation. They work with landowners, government agencies, and
      community organizations to protect species diversity and habitat;
      maintain a critical mass of working ranches, forests, and tribal
      lands; enhance local economies and vibrant communities; and provide
      benefits such as a quality water supply, recreation, carbon
      sequestration, and sustainable industries.

      The Campaign Manager will work directly with all five organizations
      and their associates to facilitate communications for all
      donor-related activities. S/he will contribute to the implementation
