ANCOR’s staff is small but mighty and most are based in our primary office in Old Town Alexandria, VA. We offer a flexible work environment, including opportunities to work from home.

  • Developing status reports on conference, summit and webinar programs to leadership.
  • Researching industry trends and innovations to consistently improve the overall quality of events.
  • Assisting the ANCOR Foundation Director with the Foundation’s Leadership Academy, a two-year educational and mentoring program designed to prepare future leaders and executives of community provider organizations.
  • Carrying out other duties as assigned. 

We’re excited to talk with you about this opportunity if you:

  • Have the equivalent of 3-4 years of experience in the areas of event planning and/or project management. This experience may be derived from the attainment of a degree in a related field, accrual of professional work experience, time spent volunteering and/or a variety of other activities.
  • Can demonstrate the ability to take a program from conceptualization through successful implementation.
  • Possess a strong customer service orientation and have the ability to establish and maintain effective working relationships with and motivate volunteers, vendors, peers and management.
  • Are proficient with all Microsoft Office programs (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook) and are open to embracing and learning new technology.
  • Can demonstrate excellent project management, interpersonal and communication skills, as well as acute attention to detail.
  • Exhibit a dedicated commitment to improving the lives of marginalized people including people with disabilities, low- and moderate-income people, people of color, and/or other traditionally underrepresented groups.
  • Can work well under pressure, facilitate solutions, and meet timelines and milestones for projects.
  • Can demonstrate your ability to prioritize and operationalize a multitude of projects, with tasks ranging from day-to-day administrative duties to high-level implementation of directional objectives.

ANCOR is proud to offer an excellent benefits package, including comprehensive health coverage, comprehensive vision and dental coverage, retirement contributions, several weeks of paid vacation and holiday leave, paid time off for volunteering, paid parental leave, a flexible work schedule and more.

ANCOR is also proud to be an equal opportunity employer.
