Dear Star Island Community,
I am pleased to announce that we have hired Pam Smith as our new Director of Development. Pam has more than twenty years of experience in development and nonprofit management. She has worked at both small and large organizations, including the MSPCA/American Humane Education Society, and The Boston Plan for Excellence in the Public Schools. Since 1998, Pam has been at the University of New Hampshire where she had a leadership role in successfully managing the institution’s annual fund, and then was promoted to Director of Donor Relations in 2009.
Pam brings a sophisticated understanding of philanthropy and volunteer and event management to our team. She also brings a passion for art, history, education, and most importantly, for Star Island! Her first day in the Portsmouth office will be on January 20. I hope you will join me in welcoming her to the Star Island family.
Joe Watts, CEO
