Mountain West Credit Union Association Hosts Global Women's Leadership Network at the 2016 Annual Meeting
Brandi Stankovic, Partner, Mitchell Stankovic and Associates opened the meeting and welcomed the group of women and men representing both the Arizona and Colorado Sister Societies. Announced were the additions of the newest Sister Societies in Peru (October 2015) and Brazil (March 2016), all making a measurable difference in the lives of both members and communities.
Brandi provided the group with an overview and update on the Global Women’s Leadership Network including a report of the global reach and local impact of the Network which represents membership of 1,050 people from 53 countries and more than $1M in funds raised.
Danielle West, Sr. Director of Training from the award winning Broadmoor Resort gave an insider’s look at how they create a culture of exemplary service. In addition to describing their 16 service standards, she described the link between training and culture, how culture is shaped by leaders, why service is so important in today’s business environment, what it means to serve both internal and external customers, and the critical nature of training staff to effectively solve problems.
The session ended with a service project benefitting Children’s Hospital Colorado. Joe Dearborn, Sr. Director, CU4Kids, described the impact credit unions have in being the third largest donor for Children’s Miracle Network of Hospitals. Sarah Flowers and Kali Smith joined from Children’s Hospital Colorado to describe the NICU kits and how those kits help to increase donations and provide insight into the impact of a premature baby’s size and needs. The group assembled close to two hundred kits!
Together we made a difference! On behalf of Mitchell Stankovic and Associates and the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, we thank you for attending the Thriller Fundraiser held at the Rock Centre for Dance. Because of your generosity, we raised over $1,600! The event was a huge success, as we had attendees as young as 5 all the way up to 80 years of age participate! We had a blast watching you all show off your Zombie moves as we celebrated giving to a cause. For more information on Credit Unions for Kids / Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, please visit: www.cu4kids.org. Your generosity and compassion has an impact in helping keep the vision of Children Miracle Network Hospitals going to continue to help children in our communities. AND it was fun. We will keep you posted on future events.
With sincere appreciation and gratitude, Brandi, Gabrielle, Sue, Mike
Together we made a difference! On behalf of the Board of Trustees and staff of Aid for AIDS of Nevada (AFAN), we thank you for volunteering at the 29th Annual Black & White Party held at the Hard Rock Hotel. Because of your volunteer support, we are able to say that we had a phenomenally successful Black & White Party. We raised $140,000 to support programs and services to people living with or affected by HIV/AIDS. The evening was a huge success, as more than 3,000 guests filled The Joint and Muse Hall for an evening of gourmet food, chilling libations and amazing entertainment.
Each year AFAN continues to advance our mission of helping over 3,500 people living in Southern Nevada with HIV/AIDS. All of the proceeds from the Black & White Party support AFAN’s vitally important programs including Prevention Education, Case Management, Emergency Financial Assistance, Nutritional Counseling, Housing, and Transportation. All of our programs are structured to provide support and advocacy for the individuals and families we serve, while working to eliminate the fear, prejudice and stigma associated with the disease. Your generosity and compassion has an impact on our clients and our agency, which goes well beyond any monetary value.
Caring people, like you, have enabled AFAN to fight HIV/AIDS in our community for 31 years. Only with your involvement and support can we truly continue to make a difference. Should you want more information regarding ways in which you can support our agency, or should any questions arise, please feel free to contact us at 702-382-2326.
