Do you share our vision of a Washington region that develops equitably and sustainably, with homes for long-term residents and newcomers? Do you want to lead the development of GGWash’s regional policy agenda? Do you think about housing, land use planning and transportation the way your peers think…everything normal people think about? Want to work with our great team?

If so, then you could be the person to fill a new role at GGWash: Director of Regional Policy! Or maybe it’s someone you know.

If you have followed the GGWash story over the past year, you have seen that we are working hard to build our capacity as an organization so that we can realize the vision of a growing and interconnected Greater Washington region. that is racial, economic, and ecologically just. To that end, we are excited to expand our team to include a Regional Policy Director.

The Regional Policy Director will report to the Deputy Executive Director (that’s me) and work closely with our DC Policy Director and the rest of our policy team. Focused primarily on housing and land use in Maryland, this individual will play a lead role in shaping GGWash’s regional policy work in the years to come. They will develop our local and state political agenda in Maryland, build and strengthen relationships with local and regional stakeholders, organize diverse people interested in housing issues in the region to ensure their voices are heard, and lead our regional approval process.
