Gerry Rasel, Director of Membership Services for the Colorado Nonprofit Association, was honored by the National Council of Nonprofits with the third annual Flo Green Network Champion Award.
“Time and time again, Gerry has shown her dedication to advancing the work of Colorado Nonprofits’ members and best practices of her peers at State Associations across the country,” said Jennifer Chandler, Vice President of the National Council of Nonprofits. “She always goes the extra mile with a smile, and has proven to be one of the most respected mentors in our network of state associations of nonprofits.”
Renny Fagan, President and CEO of the Colorado Nonprofit Association, added, “Gerry is the heart of the Colorado Nonprofit Association. She’s made a real difference for our staff and our members. To be honored by the National Council of Nonprofits is just one more demonstration of Gerry’s impact in Colorado as well as around the country.”
The Flo Green Network Champion Award is named for Flo Green, longtime Executive Director of the California Association of Nonprofits and a founder of the National Council of Nonprofits (then the National Council of Nonprofit Associations). The award is presented to one individual who embodies the traits that Flo exhibited in her decades of service to the nonprofit sector: dedication to the State Association network, generosity of spirit, enthusiastic leadership, tenacious advocacy, passion for sharing knowledge, integrity, and a proven ability to motivate others in the network to exhibit the same qualities.
