Highway 23 Coalition Vice Chair

"During our strategic planning process, it became very clear we needed this position. With some Board members pivoting from their work with the Board and the need to have someone manage the work between our various Committee and Board meetings, Tracy will help us complete our tasks and make sure we follow through on items we have prioritized."

Highway 23 Coalition Coordinator Role

The new Coalition Coordinator will be responsible for assisting with the promotion of the Mission, Vision, Goals and Action Plans of the Coalition. This person will provide support to the Coalition's Standing Committees, including interacting with the Marketing Committee, Legislative Committee, and Priority Projects Committee. An annual members campaign, including communication with renewing and new members will be lead by the Coordinator. This will include maintaining membership lists, preparing correspondence and making phone calls with prospective members and potential presentations to units of government. The Coordinator will attend and participate in Coalition functions, including Annual Meetings, General Members Meetings, monthly Board of Directors meetings, and special events. Following these meetings, the Coordinator will update the Coalition members and backers on the Board's decisions.
