Newman Alumni Board president to present on nonprofit participation

Sep 29, 2022
Cindy Miles

Cindy Miles ’09, president of the Newman University Alumni Board, is no stranger to community and nonprofit involvement.

As a candidate for government office, co-founder and founder of two nonprofit organizations and, most recently, CEO of the Kansas Nonprofit Chamber, Miles provides knowledge and expertise to others who are looking to become more involved in the community.

She will do just that for an audience at Newman University from 6-7 p.m. Oct. 6 in the Dugan-Gorges Conference Center inside Dugan Library. Miles will discuss the importance of joining, leading and being an engaged member of nonprofit boards.

“If you have volunteered more than once and love it, you might be interested in taking the next step and serving on a nonprofit board,” she said.

Attendees will learn about serving on a nonprofit board, the roles and responsibilities of nonprofit board members and how to get involved with nonprofit board service.

During an interview for the Wichita Business Journal, Miles said, “I’m always talking about how important quality of life is in our community and how much impact nonprofits make on the quality of life. So I tell people to envision what it would be like if this community didn’t have any nonprofits … nonprofits are affecting cultural arts, medical services, access to health care, homelessness, poverty, kids in school that are hungry, child abuse and it goes on and on.”

Attendance to Miles’ presentation is free, but an RSVP is appreciated. Interested individuals can RSVP anytime before Oct. 6.
