MWCA Executive Director
MWCA Membership & Technology Assistant
Kara has been working in the Centennial Valley of rural Montana for five seasons. She has worked her way up from an AmeriCorps Member to Community Organizer and currently as the Executive Coordinator. Her position in the Centennial Valley has challenged her to learn and implement various management skills, including managing staff, working on multiple projects at one time, managing various databases (in Microsoft Access and Excel), and co-creating and managing the organizational website, created on Drupal software. She has also provided consistent, extensive and quality outreach with landowners, partners and the community, rebuilding community communication and trust.
In addition to organizational management, she has been instrumental in reestablishing and maintaining an active membership within the CVA. She has developed membership dues drives, maintained consistent contact with members via email and mailings, and generated thank you notes for each member. Her enthusiasm, drive, and passion to keep members and supporters engaged in programs, projects and the organization will benefit the membership of the MWCA.
