Welcome to FAWL's New Executive Director, Kevin Hudson!
The FAWL Board of Directors is pleased to introduce FAWL's new Executive Director, Kevin Hudson. Kevin was selected after the Search Committee received and reviewed over 100 applicants and interviewed 11 candidates. Kevin was then selected by unanimous vote of the Board after they heard presentations from three highly qualified finalists. Kevin's first day on the job will be December 9.
Kevin comes to FAWL with more than 25 years of experience in not-for-profit and association management. He has been responsible for every aspect of association management including chapter and membership development, non-dues revenue programs, meeting planning in both traditional and on-line settings, print and electronic publications, special events production, and general association administration functions. He was a volunteer leader for a state association, serving as a founding chapter president, vice president of finance, and vice president of member services.
It wasn't just Kevin's extensive experience that first impressed the search committee and then the Board. It was also his passion to advance the mission of FAWL by identifying how FAWL could continue to grow as a statewide force to advocate for women.
"I get great personal satisfaction when our efforts help our communities. My ability to aid in your fight for gender equality, development of professional standards, advocacy for fairness and justice, and the ability to provide free legal services to those in need are just a few of the things that I believe will make me look forward to working with FAWL members every day," Kevin said.
Please extend a warm welcome to Kevin. We look forward to working with him to further strengthen and grow our organization.
