Non-Profit Management

Project Description: For nearly a decade I worked for the Addison County Chamber of Commerce, initially as Marketing and Communications Director and then as Executive Director. During my tenure as ED, I worked with the Board of Directors to stabilize membership in an era of declining participation in Vermont chambers. We introduced a new strategy for calculating membership investment—value based vs. fair share model—and within three years returned to profitability and increased financial reserves. I was responsible for developing an annual budget, managing staff, as well as all communication channels for membership and tourism which included print publications, website, and social media.
