I recently had the honor of attending the meeting of MFSA’s Board of Directors in Los Angeles, CA on April 30. The most important decision of this meeting was the approval of the new MFSA Executive Director, Jill Warren. She will begin her duties with MFSA on July 5, at the office in Washington, DC.
Jill is a lay member of West Bloomfield United Methodist Church in the Detroit Annual Conference, and has been active at the congregational, district and conference levels. She is an experienced nonprofit executive who has led agencies, taught management and leadership courses at the graduate and undergraduate level, and provided consulting services to foundations, agencies, boards of directors and nonprofit CEOs. Her faith has led her to do justice work in family violence prevention, reproductive health, and civil rights while giving boldly in her personal philanthropy to create a more just world. Jill brings a contagious level of enthusiasm and energy to her work, and MFSA is delighted to welcome her to its leadership.
In addition to the selection of Jill as the Executive Director, the Board approved changes to the MFSA Bylaws and other documents, heard financial and budget reports, and discussed reports from the Coalition Coordinator and the Sing A New Song planning team.
