and work with both the public and private sectors. The successful
applicant will have excellent communication and writing skills, public
relations and managerial abilities, and a strong administrative
background. Previous nonprofit experience desired, with a background in
the areas of special event planning, small business development, or
volunteer recruitment and management a plus.

Salem: The State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) has two Program
Analyst 2 positions openings. The positions administer the state's
programs for identifying and designating historic buildings and sites in
accordance with state and federal guidelines. Duties include evaluating
significance of buildings; coordinating the survey and inventory of
historic properties statewide; reviewing, preparing, and monitoring
nominations to the National Register of Historic Places; advising and
assisting federal, state, and local agencies, as well as members of the
public, in the documentation and evaluation of historic properties.
 
These positions also administer Oregon's "Environmental Compliance"
programs for historic buildings and sites, as required by federal and
state laws. This involves working with representatives of government
agencies and private companies to minimize impacts to historic
properties by federal-or state-funded development projects. The
incumbents will work closely with other SHPO staff, especially those
involved in the identification and treatment of significant historic and
archaeological properties in Oregon.
