Wanted: nonprofit leaders |

Wanted: nonprofit leaders | "Wanted: nonprofit leaders Charities seek to deliver results – and fill top jobs. By Jane Lampman | Staff writer of The Christian Science Monitor from the August 13, 2007 edition

Beth Millas has a clear sense of direction, though she's been out of college only a year. 'I definitely aspire to be in senior leadership in a nonprofit organization,' says the young professional at Points of Light & Hands On Network in Washington. Her aim: to help build charities' capacity for 'effective societal change.' Ms. Millas is well on her way thanks to nonprofit management training during her college years in Missouri. After internships at United Way, Harvester (the biggest food bank in Kansas City), and as a fundraiser for the YMCA, she took her first job in Washington in June 2006. Recently, she was promoted to director of corporate relations for the country's largest volunteer network. Millas joins the nonprofit world at an exciting but particularly challenging time – and as the need for leaders is soaring."
