ABOUT THE COMPANY
Advocacy Architects helps businesses and trade associations impact policy debates at State Capitols around the United States by using high touch, targeted direct marketing tactics to connect community advocates with their state legislators.
In the last few years, AA has developed a niche in the renewable energy space by offering highly effective and impactful legislative and political advocacy services. We are seeking to build an A-player team to reach more customers and expand the business.
Our core values, documented as a reflection of the values of the current team, describe the culture we aspire to build as we expand the team.

3. We are proactive. While others are sitting around pontificating about problems, we are already working on solutions. Our team members are nimble and believe in getting solutions to the marketplace - speedily!
4. We check our egos at the door. As a team, we solve big problems and achieve more results through cooperative collaboration.
5. We set high standards for our work. As we strive to design world-class advocacy solutions, we believe in offering high quality work to the marketplace and in doing things right - the first time.
6. We do work that matters. While we understand there are many ways that companies can build revenue streams, we are committed to doing work that matters. We are purpose-driven, intentional and targeted.
7. We believe in changing the world, one community at a time. We empower local advocates to be part of the solution to community problems and help them build connections with legislative leaders who can literally change the world.
