The Legislative Director will monitor legislative affairs, develop close working relationships with Congressional staffers (primarily focused on Congressional districts with large populations of Iranian Americans) and interest groups, and educate and advocate on behalf of our community. Staffers will engage the Iranian-American community in the process through legislative news and analyses, action alerts and campaigns, and other political engagement activities. Primary focus will be on the need for a diplomatic solution to the US-Iran stand-off, immigration and civil rights issues. NIAC organizes regular staff briefings, Congressional breakfasts and larger conferences on Capitol Hill with regard to US-Iran relations and other issues important to the Iranian-American community.
The Legislative Director will report to the Board of Directors (currently ten professionals representing the legal profession, NGO and community groups, academia, business and the media), in the person of the President, and follow general policy guidance established by the Board.
