Candidate for Nominating and Leadership Recruitment Committee
I am grateful to be slated as a candidate for NLRC.
I have been involved with PTA at the local unit, county, and state level in various roles. I am the co-founder of Father and Family Council and have 20+ years of sales, operations, and customer service experience in a leadership capacity. These experiences provided me with numerous opportunities to grow/build teams through the identification and recruitment of talented individuals. I have ten years’ experience in non-profit leadership and volunteer management working with a diverse group of volunteers and community organizations.
To promote the sustainability and growth of the association, it is vital that we seek leadership at all levels that reflects the vast diversity of our organization and with whom our members can relate beyond being a PTA volunteer. Our members deserve leaders who embody personal integrity, are compassionate, and value diverse perspectives.
The events of the past year have drastically changed how we interact with the world around us. We have been pushed to find innovative ways to foster meaningful connections virtually. This has created an opportunity to shift our strategy in engaging new leaders. So much of our past has relied on networking at conferences and events, and we now have the opportunity and responsibility to reach all corners of PTA’s footprint virtually. Through mindful and strategic planning, we can reframe how we seek out future leadership by connecting with those who are otherwise unable to access networking opportunities.
My goal is to help members, and potential members, realize their full potential and contribute their time and talent to National PTA. It has been an honor to be a PTA volunteer and I look forward to helping others also experience the invaluable benefits and professional growth that comes with increased engagement.
