      Smart Growth America (SGA) is a nationwide advocacy coalition of about 100
      groups working to promote better choices for communities that are facing
      growth challenges. We promote smart growth—an approach to economic
      development that preserves open space and farmland, revitalizes
      neighborhoods, keeps housing affordable, and provides more transportation
      choices. To accomplish our goals, we focus on four key tasks: coalition

      network of reclamation advocates, experts and practitioners, 2) the
      development of policy and technical tools to help communities prevent,
      manage and redevelop their vacant properties, 3) communications efforts to
      make the case for reclamation initiatives, and 4) the provision of technical
      assistance and training to communities of all sizes and situations. For more

      oversee the development of case studies and findings from the Campaign’s

      center of The Pennsylvania State University within PSU's College of
      Engineering.  Recognized around the world as a leader in the transportation
      field, PTI pursues a three-fold mission of research, education, and service.
      The institute’s goals are to:

      The North Country Trail Association (NCTA) is a nonprofit organization
      working in close partnership with the National Park Service to build,
      maintain, protect and promote the North Country National Scenic Trail. We
      accomplish this by coordinating and facilitating the work of volunteers in
      our 29 Chapters and 7 partner organizations, and by working closely with
      numerous public agencies. Primarily managed as a premier hiking and
      backpacking trail, the North Country Trail stretches across seven states and
      touches more than 150 public land units.

      The Director of Trail Management is a full-time, permanent position based in
      our National Headquarters in Lowell, Michigan, with a salary of $38,000 per
      year. We currently provide health and dental insurance, and the employee is
      eligible to participate in our 403(b) retirement plan. We expect the
      starting date for this position to be some time in April 2005.

      The Director of Trail Management position is responsible for all field
      management along the 4,600 mile length of the NCT. Working closely with our
      29 chapters and 7 affiliated organizations the Director of Trail Management
      responds to a wide variety of issues in both office and field work
      environments. In close communication with the NCTA’s Executive Director this
      position coordinates new trail construction, guides ongoing trail
      maintenance, formulates policy, develops access agreements, and forges
      alliances with local units of government. Our long-term vision is to place a
      series of full-time regional trail coordinators along the length of the NCT.
      As funding becomes available these regional positions will be added under
      the supervision of the Director of Trail Management. The Director of Trail
      Management will be based in Lowell, Michigan and retain responsibility for
      the state of Michigan while overseeing the NCTA’s entire trail program and
      all trail-related staff including supervising regional activities through
      the regional positions. If we succeed in placing additional trail
      coordinators in states along the trail, we would expect the “field
      coordination” aspects of the position to decrease while responsibilities
      related to “management of trail programs” would increase.

      Additional Qualifications:
      Requirements include a Bachelors degree in natural resources, recreation,
      planning, public administration, communications, or other related field.
      Minimum 2-3 years relevant work experience, or 5-10 years relevant volunteer
      experience. Experience with volunteer coordination, working with public
      agencies, organizational skills, supervisory skills, strong written and
      verbal communication skills, and evidence of considerable public contact are
      preferred. Five years of directly relevant work experience may substitute
      for a Bachelors degree.

      Requirements of Work
      * Ability to communicate clearly using a standard telephone.
      * Ability to operate standard office equipment, including a copier and
      * Ability to work effectively with other staff, volunteers, the general
      public, and representatives of outside agencies, organizations, and
      * Ability to effectively supervise, motivate, and coordinate the work of a
      variety of staff and volunteers.
      * Ability to communicate with and assist members, volunteers or the general
      public, employing courtesy, tact, and sound judgment, in order to maintain
      and nurture their relationships with the NCTA.
      * Ability to coordinate work assignments in order to produce quality results
      within established deadlines.
      * Ability to interact with members and land managers and the public on
      primitive hiking trail.
      Supervisory Controls and Work Environment
      The employee is under the direct supervision of the Executive Director;
      however, he or she will be expected to prioritize his or her work in order
      to effectively meet all day-to-day demands and ongoing assignments. The
      employee also is expected to communicate regularly on work projects and to
      seek advice on new or controversial aspects of the work. Performance
