On November 19th, Board Chair Susan Boyd was honored as the winner of the Tampa Bay Business Journal’s Outstanding Director Award for the Small Non-Profit category. She shared the stage with Theron “TD” Hawkins of Achieva Credit Union and Charles Adair of Tech Data among others. Susan’s leadership has elevated the organization’s growth and service to the community. She spearheaded the creation of a Governance Committee to oversee the professionalism and accountability of the board. She helped identify high quality board member prospects to increase the board’s effectiveness. She also led the board in creating a strategic plan, identifying increasing community awareness as its top strategic goal. That led to a rebranding, website re-design and an enhanced marketing plan (all launching in February!). Congratulations to Board Chair Susan Boyd!
