NCF TO DED: LESSONS I’LL TAKE WITH ME
27 Jun 2023
In early July, I will begin my new role as Director of the Department of Economic Development for the State of Nebraska. It is an extraordinary honor to serve my home state in this capacity and I will bring with me experiences from my past career.
As Chief Operating Officer of Nebraska Community Foundation, I like to think I learned a thing or two about community economic development. Lessons I will undoubtedly carry with me to my new appointment. I don’t have any illusions or preconceived notions that I know everything required or precisely what I will aim to accomplish in my new position, but there are a few things I believe with great certainty.
