Application for

CommonSense American State Ambassador

Job Description

As we approach CommonSense American’s (CSA’s) fifth anniversary, our more than 65,000 members can be genuinely proud of the impact we’ve already had.  To deepen and scale CSA’s impact, we’re creating new member leader positions. Ultimately, we aim to have six Regional and 50 State Ambassadors who will come from the ranks of CSA members but are starting with select regions and states.

CommonSense American Ambassadors’ work is divided into two major categories:

  • Engaging Congress—They will help extend and deepen our impact in Congress. Working closely with CSA staff, they will help schedule and conduct congressional briefings on our issue brief results. In fact, Ambassadors will lead CSA congressional briefings in many cases.
  • Engaging Members—Ambassadors will help grow the number of members and deepen member engagement, including by involving them in congressional briefings.

These volunteer positions are part-time and highly flexible in terms of scheduling. State Ambassadors are expected to average about 5 hours per week, but the actual amount in any given week can adjust significantly according to the work and other demands on Ambassadors’ schedules.

State Ambassador Roles and Responsibilities

  • Participate in coordination meetings and training sessions, including three 1 ½ hour training sessions to start.
  • Schedule and conduct congressional briefings with the offices of Members of Congress from their state on results from issues briefs. These congressional briefings will review the results page on the website that CSA develops. The first briefings will be conducted in partnership with CSA staff. CSA will provide congressional contact information and other resources for effectively scheduling briefings.
  • Complete short online reports after each Congressional briefing and short general feedback reports to help CSA build the Ambassador program.
