Prior to my arrival last summer a number of key leadership roles were filled. This included the Director of Academics, the Director of Curriculum, and the Director of Campus Life. Since my arrival I have hired a Director of Finance and Business, a Facilities Manager, an Associate Director of Advancement, and now an Associate Director of Alumni Relations.
As I look at other successful Catholic educational institutions I can see the value in having a solid team in place. The advancement team, in particular, is a key component in any nonprofit organization. Being able to secure the needed funds to run the organization is essential if we hope to truly fulfill our mission and purpose.
We obviously rely heavily on fundraising and development to maintain our financial viability as an organization. Thus, it is vital that we have personnel who build and maintain our databases, create effective marketing materials, and build the necessary relationships with our alumni, friends, and supporters to keep Saint Albert vibrant and growing well into the future. Those pieces are now in place.
My thanks to all who have made it possible to hire these people to fill these important roles. We are blessed indeed.
Katie Flanagan--we look forward to your arrival on Monday. Welcome!
