Sunbeam Seeks New Young Professionals Board Members
Sunbeam is seeking new members to join the Beacons, its Young Professionals Board of Directors.
Members of the Sunbeam Young Professionals Board are between the ages of 23-35 and have at least one year of professional experience. Board members serve a two-year term, actively raising funds and awareness about the mission and programs of Sunbeam through participation in agency events, board meetings, and volunteer and donor recruitment. Board members are active in their professions, communities and seek to engage a younger audience with the work of Sunbeam Family Services.
The original group was launched out of Leadership Oklahoma City’s Linking Oklahoma City’s Young Adult Leaders (LOYAL) class. As a group, eight LOYAL class members chose Sunbeam Family Services as its LOYAL Action Project, a community project submitted by a local non-profit that gives participants hands-on opportunities to work directly with an organization.
Current board members include: Catherine Divis, chair; Austin Marshall, vice president; Jennay Wangen, secretary; Allison Parker, board development; Phung Yip, events; Tyler Whiteside, sponsorship; Brooke Churchman, communications; Erin Engelke, Sunbeam board liaison; Luke Atkinson; Katelyn Gleason-Dockery; Bethany Marshall; Ted Perry; and Tahira Taqi.
