We’re looking for an experienced (3-5 years) journalist and editor who loves everything about association or trade publishing: getting to know – and target – a niche audience, scooping the competitive publishers both in print and online so the association looks great; getting involved in every aspect of putting out a magazine and two weekly e-newsletters (reporting, writing, editing, design) and proving with every issue that association publications are more than a mouthpiece for the association.


This is the job for you, if you have three-plus years of editorial experience and thrive on:


  • Reporting, writing and editing – you’ve got plenty of bylines by this point, but you still love to write and aren’t ready to give it up anytime soon.
  • Communicating with readers to figure out their hot buttons.
  • Coming up with article and issue ideas that make readers say, “They must have been reading my mind!”
  • Working closely with other writers to help them improve their interviewing, writing and editing skills.
  • Collaborating with other editors on everything from topics and editorial schedules to photo shoots and layout.
  • Social media – and using it to keep a trade association top of mind among its members.


Candidates must have: an undergraduate journalism degree and three-plus years of editorial experience (print or online magazine, newsletter, newspaper) that includes reporting and writing; and editing other writers for content, flow and AP Style. Candidates must also be resourceful and comfortable with technology. Familiarity with Mac environment and knowledge of open source web language a plus.


A little about us? We’re a progressive trade association representing the floral industry. Based in Alexandria, VA, we offer comprehensive benefits and a competitive salary.

Interested? Email us your bylined articles and sample publications you’ve edited (or links to the same) that show off your best side, plus your resume and salary requirements to: VP of Publishing and Communications, Email submissions preferred but if necessary, send via U.S.P.S. to:

VP Publishing and Communications,

1601 Duke St., Alexandria, VA 22314
