I want to be a public representative on the Association’s board of directors to continue giving back to my community and being an active and engaged member of our healthcare society. I am currently the CEO of a non-profit advocacy organization and will be stepping down from this position in a few months. I have worked with many non-profit boards during my healthcare career and I am interested in expanding my skills in strategic planning, board governance, fundraising, policy development, and brand recognition growth in a related but different capacity. I enjoy being an active and engaged board member and giving back to my community in the process. As a CEO reporting to a volunteer board of directors, I am acutely aware of the role and value of a non-profit board. As an active and engaged board director for current and past non-profit boards, I am able to share my experience and skills to support board development and growth; and fulfill the mission, vision, values, and strategic priorities of an organization. My skills include member recruitment and retention, financial management, fundraising, stakeholder engagement, strategic planning, government relations, public relations, board recruitment, development and succession planning, governance, human resource management, and professional education and planning.
