ANCOR, the nation’s leading voice in Washington for providers of community-based intellectual and 
developmental disabilities (I/DD) services, is experiencing a period of unprecedented growth in both 
size and stature. Our growing community is composed of more than 1,600 private I/DD provider 
agencies, state provider associations and community partners, together employing a workforce of 
more than a half million dedicated professionals supporting more than 1 million people with I/DD in 
the US.

ANCOR now seeks a full-time Director of Federal Relations to lead its federal legislative and 
administrative initiatives. Reporting to the Vice President for Government Relations and joining a 
team of four government relations professionals, the Director of Federal Relations will be 
responsible for supporting federal policy initiatives that strengthen the ability of community-based 
providers to provide high-quality supports to people with I/DD.

The Director of Federal Relations position—though not entirely new—will carry out a reimagined set 
of responsibilities on behalf of the association. This professional will play a lead role in proposing, 
formulating and advocating on behalf of innovative public policy solutions that enhance the delivery 
of long-term services and supports that enable people with I/DD to be included in the community. 
Successful candidates will exhibit evidence of a strong public policy background, a history of 
fostering relationships and partnerships, and a proven track record of successful legislative passage 
and intervention strategies.

Although ANCOR offers a flexible work environment, including opportunities to work from home, 
this position will require in-person meetings with members of Congress and their staff, as well as 
staff from federal agencies (when public health conditions permit). Therefore, the Director of 
Federal Relations should be based in or willing to relocate to the greater Washington, DC region.
As Director of Federal Relations, you will spend your days:

• Working with ANCOR staff (specifically the Government Relations team, Communications 
team and CEO) to facilitate the establishment of short- and long-term public policy priorities 
on behalf of the association.
• Serving as ANCOR’s principal Medicaid and disability policy resource for congressional offices 
and federal agencies.
• Conferring with elected and appointed officials and lobbying to represent ANCOR’s positions 
on legislative and administrative initiatives.
• Building and maintaining relationships with both formal and informal coalition partners to 
advance ANCOR’s public policy priorities.
• Working closely with the Director of Advocacy to coordinate strategic alignment and 
implementation of multi-faceted, grassroots and grasstops advocacy campaigns, including 
coordination of committees, consultants and contractors.

• Working closely with the Communications team to develop content—including articles, news 
releases and other informational materials—to articulate ANCOR’s policy positions and
