Executive Director Teri Hawthorne and Board Chairman Sarah Hardin will walk participants through how they have found success at The Arc of Greater Beaumont. Teri and Sarah are in the unique position of both being under 40 and holding the Executive Director and Board Chair positions at The Arc. They have been purposeful and diligent in their efforts to bring The Arc of Greater Beaumont into this new age while holding onto the mission, vision and values that were set by the board of directors over 10 years ago. They have proven success in growing The Arc's operating budget by over $150,000 in the past two years. Participants will be shown how introducing new technologies have strengthened The Arc and given seasoned board members an opportunity to learn a few things. The session will also dive into how Teri and Sarah continually communicate and glean knowledge from founding board members, most of whom are Baby Boomers.
