When KNN moved into our office in September, I never dreamed that by July we’d be nearly out of space. But squeezing desks into tight spaces are the kinds of good “problems” I’m facing this month as we excitedly welcome two new team members to KNN! I suspect many of you have experienced similar “growing pains” at your organizations, and despite the challenges, these are good problems and pains to have.
Sarah Brandenburg has been hired as our Director of Membership & Outreach. She is a resident of Georgetown, graduate of WKU and comes to KNN from the Kentucky Travel Industry Association and is charged with ensuring KNN benefits and educational opportunities meet your needs. She will also be working on expanding our membership so that our collective nonprofit voice continues to grow.
Ian McHugh has also joined our team as KNN’s first AmeriCorps VISTA member. He lives in Lexington and is a graduate of Berea College. Ian will also be helping us enhance our membership efforts, with a special emphasis on our work in Appalachia.
Please join me in welcoming Sarah and Ian to KNN and our nonprofit community. I know both of them look forward to connecting with you and we definitely hope we see you at the KY Nonprofit Leadership Forum on October 28-29. Please mark your calendar for the new two-day format of this annual event!
