The NASBA Center for the Public Trust has established a Development Committee to promote its advancement and fundraising efforts. Joe Cote, retiring Executive Vice President of NASBA, agreed to Chair the Committee and will continue to do so as a volunteer after his official retirement from NASBA and PCS on January 1, 2011. Committee members include Noel Allen (NC), Larry Bridgesmith (TN), Sharon Daggett (AZ) and Jack Katzenmeyer (OH). At its first meeting on September 17, 2010, in Nashville, TN, the Committee collaborated on writing a mission statement, as well as the objectives needed to fulfill it.

Mission Statement – To identify programs and activities to secure resources for the NASBA Center for the Public Trust (CPT).

The Committee spent a significant amount of time during the meeting brainstorming potential fundraising strategies aimed at various markets. More than 150 ideas were formulated. “We had a great first meeting,” stated Chair Joe Cote. “Now the hard part will be determining the best markets to target and determining which are the optimum strategies to implement.”
