DLE 2019 Retreat Alumni Auric Enchill and Stephanie Bosley have been named to the board of the NonProfit Center of the Berkshires (NPC), announces NPC Founder and DLE 2019 Retreat Speaker Liana Toscanini.
“Their fresh perspectives and energy can enhance the capacity of a small staff so we can continue to grow as the nonprofit sector demands,” says Liana, who led a session on how young professionals can get involved in leadership roles with non-profit organizations at last year’s retreat.
“Infusing the board with younger and more diverse members is a great way to creatively tackle some of the issues coming our way.”
Auric is Sales Manager at his family business, Elegant Stitches, in Pittsfield, MA. Stephanie, who also works in Pittsfield, is Community Connector Partnership Coordinator at the Berkshire Community Action Council.
Reflecting on her new role, Stephanie notes, “As someone who has based their career in the nonprofit sector, I have personally witnessed how board members and volunteers can positively affect an organization. Working for a Berkshire based nonprofit, I have participated in many events and workshops hosted by the Nonprofit Center of the Berkshires and have seen how vital their organization is to the region. I am honored and excited to serve on the Board of Directors as their organization continues to grow and respond to the needs of the nonprofit sector.”
Auric credits his DLE experience to boosting his interest and actions in community engagement. “”Going into last fall’s retreat, I wanted to become more involved in my local community, but I wasn’t sure how to go about it. My fellow DLE attendees were able to connect me with people who shared mutual passions in the nonprofit sector. The DLE and its’ strong network helped this become a reality.”
In addition to the NPC board, Auric recently was appointed to the Berkshire Immigrant Center board of directors. He notes, “These are two organizations that positively impact the livelihood of people in the Berkshires.”
Incidentally, fellow DLE 2019 Retreat Alum and DLE Advisory Board Member Michelle Lopez is the Executive Director of the Berkshire Immigrant Center. That’s the strength of the DLE network that Auric credits.
