AFWA is Seeking an Agricultural Conservation Coordinator

The Association of Fish & Wildlife Agencies is looking for a talented individual (super hero) to manage our Farm Bill conservation, forestry and bioenergy portfolio in Washington, DC.

The coordinator, under direct supervision of the Government Affairs Director, works with state fish and wildlife agencies and other Association members to enhance fish and wildlife habitat and encourage sustainably managed fish and wildlife resources through the reauthorization and implementation of conservation, forestry, energy and other provisions of the 2014 and future Farm Bills. The incumbent will work closely with the state agencies, AFWA's Agricultural Conservation Committee and its seven programmatic working groups to troubleshoot Farm Bill conservation implementation challenges and work with federal agencies and conservation partner organizations to develop policy recommendations for achieving desired outcomes. The coordinator also works with Congress during the Farm Bill reauthorization process and appropriations cycles to advance the state fish and wildlife agencies’ Farm Bill priorities.

This is a full-time position located in AFWA's Washington, DC office.
