Director of Advocacy and Public Affairs

The Preservation Society of Charleston (PSC), founded in 1920, is the oldest
community-based preservation organization in America.  Our mission is to inspire the involvement of all who live in the South Carolina Lowcountry and to honor and respect the area’s architectural and cultural heritage. The PSC serves as a strong advocacy leader for citizens concerned about preserving Charleston’s distinctive
character, quality of life, and diverse neighborhoods. The Preservation Society
of Charleston is located in Charleston, SC and is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization that relies on membership revenue, grants, and other donations.

The PSC is seeking a full-time Director of Advocacy and Public Affairs (DAP) to play a leading role in shaping and implementing the Preservation Society’s advocacy policies and programs.  The DAP is responsible for cultivating strategic relationships in the community, with the media, and among public officials in order to further the Society’s goals.
