Public Policy and Advocacy Internship with the Eastern Shore Land Conservancy
Date inactive: 1/7/2014
Eastern Shore Land Conservancy (www.eslc.org), one of the largest and most influential land trusts in the United States, seeks a part-time paid intern to work on state and local land use policy during the 2013 Maryland General Assembly legislative session.
Interns can expect to work with many other non-profits that deal with agricultural, environmental or land-use issues. This position is based out of the Queenstown, MD office, but will involve frequent visits to Annapolis, MD, as well as each of the Mid and Upper Shore counties.
ESLC is committed to preserving and sustaining the vibrant communities of the Eastern Shore and the lands and waters that connect them.
Requirements: The intern should exhibit strong writing, editing, and computer skills. Design and new media skills are a plus. Familiarity with the legislative process, non-profit organizations and/or environmental policy is also a plus.
Responsibilities: The intern will work directly with the Policy Manager to build partnerships across the state, develop strategies to preserve conservation funding, advocate for various bills, track local and state government activities, and communicate with ESLC supporters. Responsibilities may also include bill tracking, attending coalition meetings, attending legislative events, drafting testimony and some administrative duties.
