Dear members and friends of the HBA New England region,
I hope you all have had a wonderful summer and were able to take time with family and friends. As we turn to the fall and begin to wrap up the year, I wanted to share a few important updates:
Introducing Our Center of Excellence Presidents
Our HBA New England Centers of Excellence oversee corporate relations, member engagement, marketing and communications, and programming. Let me introduce you to our presidents for each of these centers:
- Sarah Dykstra, President of Corporate Relations
- Ami Ashar, President of Member and Volunteer Engagement
- Gretchen Murphy, President of Marketing and Communications
- Kelsey Gosselin, President of Programming
Each of these leaders has been volunteering in their centers for several years, bringing experience and insight to their respective teams. Many of the region’s overall initiatives and offerings would not be possible without their support.
This is the time of year when new opportunities arise for volunteering in specific regional roles. If you are looking for a great way to expand your network, gain new skills, and get experience in a leadership capacity, check out the HBA website for open roles within the HBA New England region.
