Kristin Scroggin can't do math, or bake a pie, but she is VIRTUALLY masterful at helping nonprofits share their stories! Kristin has her Masters in Communication Studies, Bachelors in Communication Arts and has been a Communications Lecturer at the University of Alabama in Huntsville for 11 years. Her passion is generational diversity, and for the past five years she has spoken at conferences and organizations across the United States ranging from Fortune 500 companies to tiny nonprofits, about this vital topic.
Kristin joins us to help attendees from across the region NAVIGATE this conference while dropping tips to cultivate a sustainable, vibrant, multi-generational base with her "Tell Your Story" material which helps nonprofits tell their story to the community, to funders, and to potential employees and volunteers.
