The South Carolina Association of Nonprofit Organizations (SCANPO) recently welcomed Brandi Elkins as its membership development manager. In this role, Elkins will oversee serving the association’s members and working with the organization’s membership committee to attract new members from across the state.
“Taking care of our members is a top priority for our organization,” said Madeleine McGee, SCANPO’s president. “With Brandi’s experience and passion for working with nonprofits, we are excited to have her join our team and feel certain she will do a great job building relationships with our current members and new members.”
Elkins joins the SCANPO team with more than 14 years of experience in managing nonprofits as an independent consultant, a chief financial officer and an executive director, including previously running the Mount Pleasant-based nonprofit, Creative Spark. She has served as Board Treasurer for the League of Charleston Theatres, has been a member of the Charleston Marathon’s YEA Grant Program Review Committee and has served as a fiscal agent for the inaugural year of Engaging Creative Minds in the Charleston County School District.
“I have always had a passion for nonprofit work, so this job is a dream come true for me,” says Elkins. “It’s not very often that you get to work with every nonprofit in the entire state in order to help strengthen the state’s nonprofit sector.”
A Mount Pleasant resident, Elkins enjoys spending her spare time with her husband Eric, her daughter Evelyn and their two German Shorthaired Pointers, Mosby and Ruger.
