OLT Adds Director of Development to Staff

OLT has hired Pamela Nelson as our new Director of Development to bring in funding for all our new exciting programs! Pam will help us to secure funds through various strategies to deliver additional revenue streams. Pam comes to the San Luis Valley from Denver where she was engaged in consulting projects and brings almost twenty years of development experience, including three years as Director of Advancement at the Lancaster County Conservancy (PA). Pam loves the challenges of funding the "start-up" stage in organizations because of the variety of responsibilities she gets to juggle from grant research / writing to annual campaigns and membership cultivation. Pam will be working on a Development Plan for OLT as she gets to know the organization, its members, and neighbors in the San Luis Valley. In her "free" time, Pam plans to spend time in the mountains where she loves to hike, ski, bike, raft, run (maybe triathlon training) or do "anything outdoors". Pam was raised in a conservation ethic as her father founded a local Audubon chapter, was an avid outdoorsman, and created a county park in PA from acreage that could have more lucratively been developed as a golf course community. Pam is looking for fundraising volunteers, especially those with experience or a passion for it, to help implement this exciting phase of OLT's organizational development as fundraising strategies are created and tested. The more we expand our circles of influence and engage more people, the better we can accomplish OLT's ambitious mission. Come in and meet Pam and get infected with her lovely enthusiasm!f
