Join the Seacoast Young Professional Advisory Board
Best Buddies Expands in New Hampshire with the Introduction of the BBNH Seacoast Young Professionals Advisory Board
Best Buddies New Hampshire (BBNH) has added a new team member to aid in their efforts of bringing the Best Buddies mission and vision to life in their state. Katie Copeland was hired as the new Area Director for Southern New Hampshire, where she will support the state’s efforts to spread inclusion. Katie previously worked in the Advancement Office at Franklin Pierce University, supporting their programming and fundraising efforts as the Director of Alumni and Parent Relations. Katie shared what excites her about joining the Best Buddies Team, “The mission at Best Buddies is so powerful. It is something that touches on everyone’s basic hopes for acceptance, inclusion, and friendship. I am excited to use my experience to help grow Best Buddies in New Hampshire and share our great work with even more people in our state.”
To kick off the expansion efforts, Katie and the BBNH team will be creating a Young Professional Advisory Board on the seacoast to bring more awareness, programming, and support to the organization, programming, and support to the Best Buddies in New Hampshire as a whole. The Young Professional Advisory Board will be an extension of the State Advisory Board that currently leads and supports Best Buddies New Hampshire initiatives like the Friendship Walk (occurring on June 11 in Concord, NH, follow this link to learn more), the Champion of the Year Gala, school programming and more. The Young Professional Advisory Board will be a wonderful opportunity for people 45 years of age and under to get more involved within the community and impact the lives of people with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities.
