AOSW is happy to welcome a new member of our headquarters staff, Kate Monkus. Kate joined the AOSW in late June and is already diving into operations, membership and all things AOSW.
Monkus has spent a lifetime working with non-profit organizations from community theater to international service clubs. During her career, Kate has held positions at the Texas Committee for the Humanities, Rotary International, and the American Red Cross. Throughout the last decade of her career she has worked in nearly every aspect of development from direct marketing and prospect research to corporate partnerships and program development.
With the American Red Cross, Kate had the privilege of working in two of the nation’s largest markets; Chicago and Washington, DC, in addition to the national headquarters. As Director of Project Integration, Kate coached field fundraisers in developing national strategies for multi-market partners, as well as best practices for community engagement and internal reporting.
Kate works at the local, national and international level to develop programs, raise funds and improve operations by focusing on personal engagement and mission-centered strategy.
Kate will help support the AOSW Board as well as the Membership Committee, SIGs, development, Annual conference, awards and social media. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
