Join special guest speaker Julia East, Executive Director of the Southwest Florida Community Foundation at our July 12th business meeting as Dr. East shares with us the challenges and rewards of being involved in the community as a professional and dealing with such issues as “how to support the nonprofit sector” and “becoming engaged in the community by using the skills that you already have.”
As public relations professionals we seem to naturally gravitate towards community involvement as part of our professional and personal lives. Frequently our biggest challenges are how to determine what organizations to lend our time and talent to, as well as how to manage our time to ensure we’re adding value both personally and professionally. Dr. East is going to help us navigate the world on nonprofit involvement and share tips on making a wise investment when it comes to volunteering and joining nonprofit boards.
Dr. East has held a variety of positions in the banking, specialty steel, nonprofit, and educational fields. She holds a Doctor of Management in Organizational Leadership and is a Certified Fundraising Executive. She has written numerous articles and has given a multitude of presentations about the nonprofit sector, philanthropy, and organizational best practices.
In addition to her daily work with the Community Foundation, Dr. East develops curriculum and teaches leadership, management, and organizational development at the master and doctoral levels, including two onsite courses in Vietnam.
Plan to join us on July 12th for what promises to be a dynamic and educational presentation.
