Be part of the movement to end Alzheimer’s!
Right now, millions of Americans are facing the devastation of Alzheimer’s. This disease is robbing us of our finances, our families and our futures - but at the Alzheimer’s Association, we’re relentlessly working to change that by addressing the challenges in front of us with speed and without limitations or boundaries. With our network of more than 75 chapters across the country, we’re advancing world-class research, ensuring access to gold-standard care and support, advancing vital public policy initiatives on the state and federal level and hiring talented, mission-driven people who make it all happen.
The Alzheimer’s Association has been ranked as one of the Best Nonprofits to Work For by The Nonprofit Times twelve years in a row, recognizing our leadership, competitive compensation and benefits, flexibility and mission-driven atmosphere. It takes a uniquely motivated person to be a part of our team - but we believe that person could be you.
Reporting to the Vermont Chapter Executive Director, the Director of Public Policy promotes the mission of the Alzheimer’s Association in Vermont by building and mobilizing grassroots advocacy, interacting with policy makers and coalitions, and communicating the Association’s issues and priorities as a public speaker and statewide expert to the media. While the Alzheimer’s Association is currently working remotely, once we return to the community, this position requires significant travel within Vermont and some travel with New England and the U.S., as well as occasional availability during evenings and weekends. We are also seeking a Director of Public Policy for our Maine Chapter!
