I am pleased to announce the hiring of Cindy Van Winkle to be ACB’s Membership Services Coordinator.
Since 2016 Cindy has served as Development and Community Outreach Coordinator at the Lighthouse for the Blind in Seattle. In her role at the Lighthouse she has been responsible for:
- Providing coordination and oversight of volunteer, school tour, and workplace giving programs;
- Producing and posting appropriate and mission-related content across social media platforms;
- Leading tours and making presentations sharing the Lighthouse mission and history; and
- Working closely with and supporting the development team on annual fund initiatives and fundraising events.
Professionalism, enthusiasm, and a sincere heart for the rights of the blind community are attributes Cindy wears daily. She has spent all of her adult life working in the blindness arena. Cindy is a motivator by nature and finds great fulfillment in encouraging others to do well, providing them the tools necessary to be successful. She has been an active member of the American Council of the Blind for over 30 years and is a passionate supporter of our mission.
Cindy started working in the Minneapolis office on June 10th. Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please join me in welcoming her to the team!
