Position: Safety Manager
Start Date: January 15, 2022
Position open until filled
Reports to: Director of Advocacy
Position overview: Adventure Cycling Association seeks an organized, collaborative person with excellent communication and project management skills to fill the role of Safety Manager. The successful candidate will be an excellent project manager, empathetic team member, and strategic thinker. This role is positioned within Adventure Cycling’s Advocacy Department.
As the largest nonprofit cycling organization in the country, Adventure Cycling has an impactful voice in policies and programs that advance the safety and accessibility of cycling. ACA serves through its members and the bike travel community. Our cycling community encourages and supports countless cyclists each year as they explore the beauty and history of America while tending to their mental and physical well-being. For nearly half a century, Adventure Cycling has created life-changing experiences that deepen appreciation for our country’s diverse cultures, communities, landscapes, and people.. ACA headquarters are based in Missoula, MT, and we acknowledge and honor the Indigenous peoples who consider this land their home. The area’s natural abundance was stewarded by many peoples including the Blackfeet, Crow, Shoshone, Cheyenne, Kootenai, Pend d’Oreilles and Salish for millennia before colonization, and continues to be to this day.
The Staff and Board of Directors of Adventure Cycling Association believes in the power of bicycle travel to open minds and change the way the world explores. We envision a future where this organization draws staff, tour leaders, members, board members, and riders from the whole of our society. For this to occur, bicycle travel has to be available for everyone.
We are committed to listening to BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and other marginalized peoples and understanding the systems contributing to oppression while also working to provide more resources and support for these communities. The Adventure Cycling Association acknowledges its place in this power dynamic. As an organization we have benefitted from white privilege omnipresent in the United States and must use our power to hire, support, empower, and create safe spaces for Black, Indigenous and People of Color, LGBTQIA+, and Femme/Trans/Women communities.
We are seeking a team member with strong collaboration and project management skills to support Adventure Cycling’s focus on safety.
This is a full time, exempt position (average 40 hrs/week, Monday - Friday). Adventure Cycling’s headquarters is located in beautiful and bike-friendly Missoula, Montana, but the Advocacy Team is remote. Position may be in Missoula or remote. Benefits include paid time off, holidays, an additional fully paid one-week bike vacation (a.k.a. “bike respite”), medical, dental, and vision coverage, life insurance, and retirement plan. We have a wonderful office in downtown Missoula, with plenty of bike racks! Adventure Cycling Association is an equal opportunity employer.
