Hillary Sheffer, 2018 Ohio Chapter Chair

Message from Chair

We are off to a great start this year. A lot has been going on. After our fabulous kick-off meeting in January, the board and committee chairs spent a Saturday in February for a morning of strategizing. We took a look at what we do well, where we can improve and what should our focus be for 2018. We took all the input and grouped them into five (5) key areas: Support, Meetings, Membership, Technology and Processes. From there we prioritize and selected the three items to work on in 2018.

The calendar of programs is well under way. The breakfast in March was very well attended, we are getting ready to kick off our annual clothing drive in April, and are putting together a fabulous workshop in May to be at the Shadowbox ( Check out our website for the most current information (

Committees have been meeting to work through the details around the holiday social, mentoring program, scholarships & awards as well as the website redesign. Committees are valuable vehicles we use to accomplish much within our organization. Specifically, they are the units that take on specific and detailed work when the task is too complex and time consuming to handle in meetings. More importantly, committees provide opportunities for the organization to foster and develop talent. Involving more people, allowing volunteers to use their specialized skills or interests, and addressing work in right-sized groups make committees a very real asset for non-profit organizations.

Think about how you can get involved. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to either myself, anyone on the executive committee or the committee’s chairperson.
