VOLUNTEERING Prince William Chamber of CommerceManassas, Virginia
Volunteer for Chairman's Dinner.
2014 Toastmasters International-Speak Up Manassas Manassas, Virginia.
Open House Chair.
Catholic Business Network of NoVAGainesville, Virginia
Prince William Chapter.
CBN NoVA under its new Chairman of the Board expanded its footprint from having events solely in McLean, VA to the expansive NoVA region.
The new model concept was to have larger events and create smaller local chapters within the Arlington Diocese.
Chapters included Dulles, Mclean, Alexandria, Leesburg, Fauquier and Prince William.
I was selected as the inaugural chair for Prince William.
My role was to recruit and retain membership of both Prince William and CBN Nova as a whole.
Also, create and coordinate monthly events including breakfast, networking, and guest speaker.
My responsibility was to find the facility, work out the contract and the details of the event with the facility manager on a monthly basis, find and coordinate guest speakers that would be of interest to the group and meet qualifications.
In addition, I was responsible for promoting each monthly event to increase attendance, manage rsvp's, manage check- in, collecting money, paying the facility and depositing the money collected into the bank account I was fully responsible for.
To successfully market the events, I met with and fostered a relationship with the office staff of 6 local parishes in the east and west end of Prince William County.
I maintained communication with their pastors and bulletin coordinators to get our local event into their announcements.
I worked tirelessly, as well, to use email marketing and build a network of people within each church community that would promote and grow the mission of our organization.
I was ultimately responsible for taking a concept of hosting local events within the PW region to creating a functioning chapter and building a thriving group.
Success of each meeting was a range of 10-15 to 20-50 in attendance in a matter of a few months.
Not only generating attendance, I was also the MC, I ran the program of each meeting keeping to the exact time, opening remarks and introduce dignitaries, detailed introductions of our guest speaker, keeping speakers in allotted time, facilitating Q & A, tactfully returning to the podium to close out the meeting with closing remarks and thank everyone for coming to following up with thank you correspondence to each guest speaker.
Additionally, I was responsible for creating a local advisory board as well as an active board member on the larger CBN NoVA Board of Directors.
