The Board of Directors of the Nokomis East Neighborhood Association (NENA) is thrilled to announce to our neighbors the hire of new Executive Director Becky Timm. She will begin full time on July 27, 2015.
Becky is an experienced executive director specializing in sustainable organizational development through an asset-based approach. For the past four years, she has been the director at the Powderhorn Park Neighborhood Association (PPNA). During her time, she helped reestablish a struggling neighborhood association into a sector leading nonprofit with a methodical plan connecting mission, governance, finances, fundraising, programs and organizational leaders and staff.
Becky is passionate about increasing citizen involvement and has dedicated her career to building strong neighborhood organizations to ensure that community voices are heard. She is skilled at helping organizations and groups move their ideas to reality.
Her prior work experiences include serving as a Community Builder for the East Side Neighborhood Development Company; Peace Corps Volunteer for three years, including serving as a Small Business Development and NGO Advisor in Togo, West Africa and the Philippines; and also worked as a Government Affairs Specialist at ACA International, a national trade association.
With a long history of proactive leadership and community involvement, we are confident that Becky will help to further NENA’s goals to promote neighborhood improvement and revitalization, and to encourage citizen participation in civic affairs.
