*** Thank you:

Mr. Lundquist —

Just wanted to thank you for providing such a wonderful service and newsletter each week.

I have been subscribing for myself for the past couple of months, but also was forwarding openings to my husband. I just wanted to let you know, after more than two years of being without full-time work, he was being highly considered for a JOTW position I saw advertised in Florida. They contacted him, interviewed him twice and met with him in person and were in the process of offering him the position. Turns out, the Florida state legislature introduced a bill that would potentially impeded their efforts in a huge way, so they called to let my hubby know they couldn't, with a good conscience, offer him anything until the issue was resolved.

All that, however, is neither here nor there for the reason I'm writing you….as it turns out, he has taken another position here in DC that he was also being considered for at the same time.

But, I just wanted to say thanks so much…it was just awesome to see my husband so encouraged and hopeful for the first time in a long time about being considered for a position he would have enjoyed a lot, and felt like he was contributing to, for a fulfilling position.

If it hadn't been for your listings, we would never have known about it — and I just wanted to let you know the work you do does end up doing good…probably more often than folks let you know, too.

I continue to search….and will let you know of my success story when it becomes available, too. Again, thanks very much for a great service!

42.) National Field Director, Public Interest Network, Boston, MA, Washington DC, Denver, CO, or Los Angeles, CA

The Public Interest Network (http://www.publicinterestnetwork.org/) is seeking a National Field Director. The National Field Director is a new position for the network. We are looking for senior level candidates with strong field organizing experience.

Background

The Public Interest Network founded more than a dozen civic organizations including: U.S. PIRG, the Federation of State Public Interest Research Groups (PIRGs); Environment America and its state affiliates; Center for Public Interest Research; Environmental Action; the Student Empowerment Training Project; Toxics Action Center; Pesticide Watch; Green Century Capital Management; Green Corps; National Environmental Law Center; and Frontier Group.

The Public Interest Network evolved from collaborations among the state PIRGs, which began actively sharing ideas and combining efforts in the early 1980s. One of the earliest and most lasting results of these collaborations was the launch of our shared canvass model, and we have continued to take advantage of our shared resources and coordination to build and refine one of the nation’s most robust field operations, with grassroots and grass-tops political power in all 50 states. Now, as in our early days, each member organization within the Public Interest Network works on its own agenda according to its own strategy with its own base of support. Member groups share a model for organizational success that emphasizes goal-setting, accountability and sustainable expansion. We work together to identify, recruit and train the next generation of leadership for the public interest movement, and when new opportunities or challenges arise, we meet them together, sharing resources, ideas and technical expertise.

Top priorities for the position

• Advance best practices throughout our organizations, including development and deployment of new technologies (e.g. the VAN, IPads, IPods, etc.), as well as development and improvement of field work models.

o Evaluate and update Public Interest Network field models each year, using cost/benefit analysis and developing other tools to assess the programs in terms of management, product, and expense.

o Identify and evaluate new tools and methods for field organizing.

o Track developments in field work from other organizations and campaigns. Aggressively test promising ideas and find ways to implement them in Public Interest Network models.

o Develop new and better models for self-sufficient field campaigns.

o Train staff within the network on best field practices.

• Building field power in all 50 states

o Develop short and long range plans for building field power for Public Interest Network organizations in all 50 states.

o Facilitate coordinated field efforts of the network organizations through conference calls, emails, sharing of strategies.

o Represent the Public Interest Network for coordinating field efforts with other organizations and seeking out opportunities for collaboration.

o Maintain the organizations’ legislative and electoral field target chart.

• Fundraising from foundations, donors, and coalition partners to support existing and new field work to help us reach these goals.

a sanded floor and whitewashed walls and the green trees,

and flowery meads and living waters outside;

which, think you, is the most refined,

the most fit, for a gentleman of those two dwellings?
