The Bay Area Air Quality Management District (Air District), created in 1955, is the state’s first regional agency dealing with air pollution. The Air District is tasked with regulating stationary sources of air pollution in the nine counties that surround the San Francisco Bay: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, southwestern Solano, and southern Sonoma counties. The Air District is seeking a candidate that is a dedicated professional who establishes positive working relationships with staff, the Board of Directors, and the diverse communities which we protect and serve. The candidate will be a strategic thinker who serves as an organizational asset via creative problem solving. Our ideal candidate is someone who is results-oriented and balances the need to be attentive with the appropriate level of detail. The successful candidate must be a member in good standing of the State Bar of California. Qualified candidates typically have the equivalent to graduation from a four-year college or university, a law degree and significant experience in the active practice of law in the State of California, including management or supervision of a professional staff. Extensive experience in a public agency setting and in the active practice of environmental law are desirable. The annual salary for the District Counsel is competitive and negotiable, and dependent on qualifications and experience. The Air District also offers an outstanding benefits package.
