Background

Experience

Meeting and Event planner/Fundraising Project Manager - New Neighborhoods, Inc.

– Present (13 years 7 months)New York and Connecticut

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

With a diversified background in the hospitality industry, planning meetings and events, marketing to corporate, asssociation and incentive clients and fundraising for various organizations, I am adept at planning creative events and growing the database of all organizations I work for.

This challenging economy calls for innovative problem solving, creativity, diligence and hard-work, which are the hallmarks of my reputation and work ethic. I can help by supporting creative event planning, marketing, writing, fundraising, and sales/promotion projects.

What I’m working on now - - -

Each year I am involved in planning a fundraising event for a non-profit housing organization in Stamford, Connecticut. My various duties include selecting the venue, building attendance, fundraising, designing invitations, obtaining prizes and permits, working with vendors and helping to design and execute the event.

In addition I work part-time for an international tour operator/meeting planning company with clients from all over the world.

I have also worked on fundraising projects in the non-profit theater community in NYC. I worked on a campaign for an Off-Broadway theater, helping to write, edit and distribute over 1,000 fundraising letters. This type of project combines my experience in theater, my creativity and my writing/editing skills.

I love to generate new, out-of-the-box ideas to solve business problems and to help organizations grow their client database..
