TU Membership Diversity Coordinator

Trout Unlimited is looking for a Diversity Coordinator. I have included some details below, and the full RFP is attached to this e-mail.

Please pass this along to anyone you think might be interested!



Trout Unlimited (TU) is requesting proposals from qualified applicants for a Membership Diversity Coordinator. If you think you would enjoy the team atmosphere that comes from working for a growing organization with a strong volunteer base and broad conservation mission; if you want to ensure TU remains relevant by diversifying our base; if you’re excited to share this passion with others then e-mail your resume, cover letter and list of references to, Beverly Smith, Vice President for Volunteer Operations [bsmith] by Monday, Feb. 2 and include Membership Diversity Coordinator in the subject line.

Today TU is a national organization with more than 150,000 members organized into about 400 chapters from Maine to Montana to Alaska. This dedicated grassroots army is matched by a respected staff of lawyers, policy experts and scientists, who work out of more than 30 offices nationwide.

A major priority for the organization is to diversify our membership, our leadership and to generally create a more welcoming and inclusive community which includes our chapters and councils. It is quite clear that a more diverse membership profile will better enable the organization to more effectively represent the angling community and to do the best possible, most complete conservation work. When we don’t have all the stakeholders at the table, our solutions are incomplete.

Therefore; TU seeks a dedicated and self-motivated contractor to serve as its Membership Diversity Coordinator. This contractor will join TU’s Volunteer Operations staff for a 16 month period and assist with our existing women’s initiative and drive new initiatives to diversify the membership and help the TU community become more welcoming and inclusive. In this job, the Membership Diversity Coordinator will help chapters and state councils strengthen their own organizational capacity so that they are more successful in recruiting a diverse membership and leadership. The contractor will play an advisory role to marketing and communications on representation issues in our media and marketing, and participate in membership marketing. A successful candidate will have a deep passion for trout and salmon conservation issues, as well as experience with grassroots organizing, and an interest in fly fishing. It is very important that candidates possess strong written and verbal communication skills and are able to manage multiple projects simultaneously. Service delivery will also be a fundamental component to this job.

Contractor location is negotiable and will report directly to the Vice President for Volunteer Operations with a strong working relationship with the Membership and Marketing staff.
