Your Together SC Team is expanding
July marks the beginning of Together SC's FY22 and with it comes exciting leadership growth for your Together SC team.
Together SC's Board recently approved business model revisions and a three-year budget plan that aim to ensure Together SC comes back from the pandemic stronger than ever.
We are excited about what's ahead and hope you will be too.
First off, I'm back to working fulltime, grateful for the time I had this spring to assist my parents but ready to be "all-in" as we implement exciting new changes.
- Debbie Nelson has worked with Together SC since soon after I arrived in 2011. I am so very excited to announce that she is expanding her role as Chief Learning Officer and will be responsilbe for developing and managing all of Together SC's learning opportunities, including the annual Summit and our ongoing peer networks.
- Ben Bullock, now Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, will continue his leadership on day-to-day operations so I can focus on advocacy and the fundraising needed to grow our capacity.
To support our operations we are expanding our staff. Our team is scatted across the state with all positions able work from home. We seek applicants for the following new postitons:
The consultant partners we engaged this spring worked out so well that they are now an integral part of our team.
- Kathryn Harvey of Neue South Collective, in Spartanburg, will continue to support our strategic communications, including For Good Connections.
- Mary Dell Hayes, principal of StopGap Consulting in Columbia, will continue supporting membership services and more.
- GP McLeer (ED of SC Arts Alliance and Mayor of Fountain Inn) through his firm, Pecan Public Relations, will handle legislative monitoring, government relations, and our advocacy work, in addition to planning programming for the Advocacy Allies peer network and staffing the Advocacy Allies Leadership Team.
- Charles Weathers will continue to lead Carolina Leadership Seminars for new execs each fall and other programming.
- Jessica Sharp of Sharp Brain Consulting out of Greenville will continue to support the Black Nonprofit Leaders Group.
In fact, we are using this "staffing" model to expand our peer networks, adding four to five new peer networks that should be up and running this fall.
Our members deserve a support team that includes the best and the brightest South Carolina has to offer. As we work to build out just such a team, we hope you will join us.
