Vice President for College Advancement

Beth Mathews, Vice President for College Advancement at Ogeechee Technical College has been named to the Board of Directors for the Council for Resource Development (CRD), Silver Spring, MD. She will serve a three –year term beginning November, 2012.

CRD is the only professional association exclusively advocating and promoting community college resource development. The organization supports professionals and develops leaders through education, advocacy and mentoring.

As Vice President for College Advancement, Mathews coordinates the efforts of the Ogeechee Technical College Foundation, Inc., which annually raises funds in support of the College’s students and faculty. Scholarships, staff development, emergency funds, and other vital services are provided to Ogeechee Tech through the work of the Foundation, according to Dr. Dawn Cartee, Ogeechee Technical College President. “Beth does an outstanding job of generating funds and friends for the College. Many of our students would be unable to attend the College without the support offered by the Foundation,” said Cartee. “Beth’s involvement in CRD, and their desire to have her serve on their Board of Directors, is an indicator of their faith in her ability to lead.”

CRD represents over 1700 community college resource development officers at more than 745 two-year colleges, and is an affiliate council of the American Association of Community Colleges. Members include college foundation executive directors, grant development and management officers, alumni officers, major and planned gifts officers, and community college faculty, staff, and presidents who engage in activities to raise resources to support the mission of the nation’s community colleges.

“As community colleges strive to fulfill our society’s goals to enrich our communities through workforce training and college degree attainment, we are thrilled that [Name] will help guide CRD’s strategic vision to provide the gold standard in professional development and advocacy for our members,” said Polly Binns, CFRE, executive director for the Council for Resource Development. “We will engage [his/her] expertise in the field and passion for the mission to lead our planning and development as the premier professional development association for community college development officers.”
