WELCOME TO OUR NEW DEVELOPMENT DIRECTORS
Hiring a new Development Director gave the IFM Executive Committee and Board an opportunity to evaluate our mission and requirements to meet IFM’s growing partnerships and focus on providing locally grown nutritious food to 100% of those struggling with food insecurity. The scope of the part-time position involves four distinct responsibilities:
Marketing and Social Media
After a lengthy process of reviewing and interviewing many applicants, the Executive Committee and Board determined that splitting the Development Director position would not only capitalize on the strengths of the final candidates, but each Development Director could focus more deeply on the needs of two responsibilities.
The split Development Director positions and candidates Naomi Cabral and Lindy Beatie were approved by the IFM Board of Directors on March 26th. Both Naomi and Lindy enthusiastically began work at IFM on April 16th. Kate will work side by side with the new Directors until May 31st and then transition out.
Both Naomi and Lindy bring a wealth of experience, a passion for the poor and an eagerness to learn what we do at IFM. Naomi has lived in Nevada County for approximately four years. She is the event coordinator for the Nevada City Craft Fair at Miner’s Foundry and has experience in marketing/social media. Lindy has lived in Rough and Ready for many years and has extensive experience with The Boys and Girls Club, United Way and is an avid Rotarian. As part of the interview process Naomi and Lindy volunteered in Distribution for a day and had a blast. We are very excited to have Naomi and Lindy join the IFM team!
