American Network of Community Options and Resources (ANCOR)
ANCOR, the national trade association for disability service providers, is hiring a Director of State Partnerships and Special Projects in our Government Relations department to lead its state association relationships and guide ANCOR’s federal grant work.
ANCOR has over 1,400 members who are providers of disability services. In addition, ANCOR represents 55 state provider associations and is a leading source of information sharing and federal policy making for these associations and their State Association Executive (SAE) leadership. The Director is the key staff to oversee and support the collective discussions of the SAEs and their staff, including at three in person events throughout the year and on bi-monthly calls. The Director is also the initial point of contact for the SAEs on all issues related to their membership and addressing their membership needs, whether on policy or best practices. This portion of the role requires good relationship skills, keen organization and communication skills, as well as breadth of experience with membership, Medicaid, disability, LTSS, and related topics.
The Director is also responsible for ANCOR’s federal grant work which is currently focused on a federal grant with the Administration of Community Living, in partnership with other organizations, that provides information to the community and states on the business acumen required for community based disability organizations to partner with states on integrated and managed care contracts. As we enter the third year of this grant with the possibility of extension, we seek a Director who has strong project management skills, ideally but not required experience with managed care systems, and great presentation skills.
