Director of Federal Relations - ANCOR

 

ANCOR, the nation’s leading voice in Washington for providers of community-based intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) services, is experiencing a period of unprecedented growth in both size and stature. Our growing community is composed of more than 1,600 private I/DD provider agencies, state provider associations and community partners, together employing a workforce of more than a half million dedicated professionals supporting more than 1 million people with I/DD in the US.

ANCOR now seeks a full-time Director of Federal Relations to lead its federal legislative and administrative initiatives. Reporting to the Vice President for Government Relations and joining a team of four government relations professionals, the Director of Federal Relations will be responsible for supporting federal policy initiatives that strengthen the ability of community-based providers to provide high-quality supports to people with I/DD. 

The Director of Federal Relations position—though not entirely new—will carry out a reimagined set of responsibilities on behalf of the association. This professional will play a lead role in proposing, formulating and advocating on behalf of innovative public policy solutions that enhance the delivery of long-term services and supports that enable people with I/DD to be included in the community. Successful candidates will exhibit evidence of a strong public policy background, a history of fostering relationships and partnerships, and a proven track record of successful legislative passage and intervention strategies.

Although ANCOR offers a flexible work environment, including opportunities to work from home, this position will require in-person meetings with members of Congress and their staff, as well as staff from federal agencies (when public health conditions permit). Therefore, the Director of Federal Relations should be based in or willing to relocate to the greater Washington, DC, region. 

As Director of Federal Relations, you will spend your days:

  • Working with ANCOR staff (specifically the Government Relations team, Communications team and CEO) to facilitate the establishment of short- and long-term public policy priorities on behalf of the association.
  • Serving as ANCOR’s principal Medicaid and disability policy resource for congressional offices and federal agencies.
  • Conferring with elected and appointed officials and lobbying to represent ANCOR’s positions on legislative and administrative initiatives.
  • Building and maintaining relationships with both formal and informal coalition partners to advance ANCOR’s public policy priorities.
  • Working closely with the Director of Advocacy to coordinate strategic alignment and implementation of multi-faceted, grassroots and grasstops advocacy campaigns, including coordination of committees, consultants and contractors.
  • Working closely with the Communications team to develop content—including articles, news releases and other informational materials—to articulate ANCOR’s policy positions and inform members and other advocates about opportunities to take action.
  • Providing technical assistance and support to ANCOR members regarding key policy priorities.
  • Delivering presentations at conferences, webinars and events hosted by ANCOR and its members.
  • Carrying out other duties as assigned. 

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

  • Have the equivalent of 6-8 years of experience in the areas of government relations, federal lobbying and advocacy, public policy management, public administration and/or public service. This experience may be derived from the attainment of a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in a related field, accrual of professional work experience, time spent volunteering for trade association committees, and/or a variety of other activities.  
  • Have knowledge of federal governmental activities, including legislative, regulatory and budgetary processes, as well as experience leveraging these processes to effectively bring about legislative, administrative and regulatory reforms.
  • 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 demonstrate excellent analytical, written and oral communication skills, as well as acute attention to detail.
  • 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 family leave, a flexible work schedule and more.

ANCOR is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. People with disabilities, people of color, immigrants, women and members of the LGBTQ community are encouraged to apply because we believe diverse perspectives enhance our work.

To be considered for this opportunity, write an email with a few bullet points about why you’re excited about the position, attach your résumé, put “Director of Federal Relations” in the subject line and send it to Shannon McCracken, Vice President for Government Relations, [email protected]. For best consideration, apply by October 21, 2021.
