University of Pittsburgh Medical & Health Sciences Foundation
I have been a NACRO member for its entire 10 year history, and have had the joy and privilege of watching the organization grow and develop from a grassroots effort to bring together a small group of like-minded individuals into the leading corporate relations organization it is today. I have served in many leadership roles over the years, including co-chairing the Marketing Committee and the Conference Planning Committee, and have been appointed Board Member-at-Large. I have also been a member of the Professional Development Committee, assisting with developing NACRO’s new webinar programming, and of the Site Selection Committee, recommending where our annual meetings will be held for the upcoming year. I have benefitted tremendously both personally and professionally through my NACRO involvement, and have a true appreciation and awareness of the value that NACRO membership provides.
