I have been a member of NACRO since 2008 and have been an active member of the Marketing Committee since 2009. I served as co-chair of the Marketing Committee and on the NACRO Board of Directors in FY13 and FY14. I have also served on the Conference Planning and Site Selection Committees and was involved with creating the NACRO Strategic Plan. I have a broad understanding of the NACRO organization and a desire to help the organization grow as the corporate relations profession gains in prominence.
