The following message is from Gail McGovern, President and CEO:
I’m pleased to announce the final selection of National Leadership Council members. The final selections were based on many factors including: geographic diversity, Regional versus Community Chapters, nominee’s time with the organization and other leadership experience. I also wanted to insure that there was representation from each of the newly formed Chapter Network Divisions as well as a mix of current and former Chapter Board Chairs.
This group of high-level advisers will provide me and the senior management team with insight and advice, bringing their diverse experience and tremendous success in their respective fields. They will also serve as ambassadors in the field and be available to all volunteer leaders to insure that everyone continues to have a voice as we move forward with One Red Cross.
