The Director of Advocacy maintains strategic and operational responsibility for the planning, execution, and evaluation of all advocacy programs of the Preservation Society of Charleston (PSC).  He or she is also responsible for cultivating strategic relationships in the community and among public officials in order to further the PSC’s mission. The Preservation Society of Charleston is the oldest grass roots preservation organization in the country. In recent years, the PSC has innovated its approach in such a way that while maintaining the more traditional activities of historic preservation, the organization supports a more livable, sustainable Charleston by addressing the challenges of overdevelopment, over-tourism, and flooding. The PSC supports good planning and good government by informing and inspiring an engaged citizenship, convening important and timely conversations, and collaborating with community partners to advocate for a well-planned city that promotes strong neighborhoods and vibrant commercial districts.  The Director of Advocacy (DA) directs the advocacy and the community outreach programs of the Preservation Society.

• Develop and cultivate relationships with various community organizations, elected and appointed officials, and media outlets in order to expand the PSC’s reach and effectiveness.
• Build and coordinate new grassroots networks in support of PSC’s mission.
• Manage the advocacy message through a comprehensive media strategy encompassing print, broadcast, electronic, and social media, serve as a spokesperson for the organization as appropriate, develop advocacy positions and communicats them to the media, to community partners, to public officials and to the community at large.
