    Job Description

    Position & Purpose

    At Amfac Parks & Resorts, the nation's premier National and State park concessionaire, environmental stewardship is fundamental. In January 2000, Amfac adopted an ambitious Environmental Initiative reflecting Amfac's role as an industry leader in protecting and preserving our environment. Amfac has determined that the most effective way to implement its Environmental Initiative is to create the senior management position of Environmental Programs Director. The Director will be responsible for assisting more than 25 Amfac properties in National and State parks and private resorts with the implementation and application of the Environmental Initiative to the individual properties, in settings as diverse as the Florida Everglades, Death Valley, Yellowstone, Silverado Country Club & Resort and the Grand Canyon. The position will involve developing, implementing and maintaining environmental strategies and programs for Amfac Parks & Resorts, consistent with the Environmental Initiative. The Director will also be responsible for ensuring compliance with all applicable environmental laws.
