Part of a rapidly growing leadership team, the Communications Director will be responsible for developing and implementing a national communications strategy that supports existing best-in-class programs and raises the profile of NACA’s initiatives and campaigns both nationally and in local markets.
Reporting directly to a highly visible CEO, the Communications Director will ensure that NACA’s work and mission are widely and accurately publicized. NACA’s campaigns and advocacy efforts often involve demonstrations and actions targeted against individuals, corporations, and government entities that are on the wrong side of fair lending and economic justice issues. NACA’s advocacy approach is based on confrontational, aggressive direct action to confront decision makers where they live and socialize. Recent campaigns by NACA have been covered by many national and local media outlets.
In addition to supporting a growing, high profile organization, the Communications Director has the opportunity build a strong communications infrastructure, hire and manage a national communications team, and develop NACA’s Communications Department as it conducts several exciting initiatives - including an on-site radio studio, state-of-the-art podcasts, website enhancements, and social media - to enhance two-way communications with NACA’s two million plus members and others. NACA’s communication activities will grow markedly as it launches multi-state initiatives focused on student debt, criminal justice and economic justice issues.
