Crystal Vickmark has been appointed by the National Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) Association as a member of its newly formed Suburban Leadership Council. Four Leadership Councils (Urban, Suburban, Rural, and Tribal) have been organized by the National CASA Association with members representing their peers from similar size programs. Each council will advise and provide support to the National CASA Association in its work on behalf of state organizations and local programs, by sharing expertise and providing input and guidance.
“Through strong partnerships and collaborative strategies, we will strengthen the foundation of the CASA/GAL member network, create pathways for sustainable organizational growth, and generate better outcomes for the abused and neglected children we serve,” said Tara Perry, Chief Executive Officer of National CASA Association.
“This engagement with state and local members is rooted in the National CASA Association Strategic Framework,” said Perry. “We are very appreciative and excited to have this level of talent serving on the Suburban Leadership Council, working together to look at the unique needs of abused and neglected children in these communities.”
Crystal is one of 12 CASA directors selected for this prestigious opportunity. We look forward to her using her expertise and 13 years of experience serving Northwest Arkansas to strengthen the entire network of CASA programs across the country. Way to go, Crystal!
