Subject: [WCEA list] Beyond Coal Campaign seeks campaign representative targeting West’s largest coal plant fleet

The Sierra Club’s highly successful Beyond Coal Campaign seeks a talented campaign representative to lead our initiative to move PacifiCorp beyond coal to clean energy.

The Beyond Coal Campaign has, with its partners, stopped the construction of 174 proposed coal plants, put 145 coal plants on a retirement schedule, and advocated for clean energy to replace coal.  
PacifiCorp operates or takes power from 26 coal plant boilers through its two subsidiaries, Pacific Power and Rocky Mountain Power.  The utilities serve areas rich in renewable energy resources and opportunities for increased energy efficiency.  
The successful candidate will be familiar with energy policy, have proven experience with strategic planning and running advocacy campaigns, and be comfortable working with elected officials, decision makers, grasstops, and the media.  A commitment to working with volunteers and building a diverse community of coal-to-clean energy advocates is important.    

If you know of anyone who might be a good fit for the job, please let me know and/or forward them this email!  Also, please post, tweet, share as you wish.  I want to recruit a diverse applicant pool.
