Organization Overview: Founded in 1977, the Federation of State Humanities Councils (”Federation”) is a 501(c)(3) and the national membership organization for the state and jurisdictional humanities councils. Rooted in the distinctive places and people they serve, the councils are independent nonprofit organizations that conduct and fund public humanities programs, engaging millions of people in community and civic life. The councils are funded in part by the federal government through the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).  The Federation serves the councils by fostering connections and deepening their networks, providing resources and capacity-sharing opportunities, acting as a liaison with the NEH, and advocating to Congress for federal funding.

Position Summary: The Communications Manager is responsible for overseeing the implementation of both internal and external communication strategies. The Manager provides vital internal support to all areas of the membership-based organization as the Federation pursues the goals of its new Strategic Plan, building on its capacity to support and strengthen its member state and jurisdictional humanities councils.

Mission

The Federation advocates for increased investment in and engagement with the national network of humanities councils. We support, connect, and amplify the work and voices of our members, demonstrating councils’ value for communities and their collective impact on civic health and cultural vibrancy.

The Communications Manager will support the Federation’s mission by ensuring the organization’s work and strategic priority areas (advocacy, NEH relationship, member resources, and leading with equity) benefit from a coordinated and cohesive communications strategy. The Manager will manage, write, and edit external and internal communications with direction from the Director of Engagement & Impact and collaboration with other staff.

Vision

We envision a fully-resourced, inclusive, and thriving humanities council network that builds capacity for people and communities throughout the country to understand one another and navigate together towards a just future.

The Communications Manager will support the Federation’s vision by using language and technology to help the organization advocate for Federal funds for member councils, strengthen the relationship with NEH, and strengthen members’ sense of community and the connectedness of the humanities council network.
