Development and Fundraising

I have worked for 2 United Way programs (in New Mexico and in Logan County) preparing direct mailings, coordinating events, writing grants, doing presentations for employees and investors.   I wrote grants and newsletters as well as doing public speaking, event & promotion planning and community-building for the MainStreet Program in Hobbs, NM.   I was the chairman of the Development committee of the Habitat For Humanity chapter in Hobbs as we built our first home.  I wrote a grant for that chapter as well as planned the ribbon cutting and other activities.

Microsoft Outlook

"Guerrilla Marketing"

I really believe that organizations do not have to budget a great deal for marketing/advertising expenses.  There are so many different message boards, online calendars, marquee opportunities, e-mail and newsletter opportunities (to name a few) that can be used to stretch those marketing dollars.

PowerPoint

Excel

I took a class to learn more about Excel.  While I currently use it mainly for spreadsheets, I'm aware of the capabilities and how to use them.

Desktop publishing, brochures, newsletters, etc.

I am very familiar with Microsoft Publisher having used it for many purposes including newsletters for different organizations, posters and flyers for events, greeting cards, brochures, etc.
