Alumni Board Meeting – October 1st

After being in his position for just over two weeks, president, CEO and HOPE alumnus, Dr. Tom Kenyon, joined the conference call meeting to outline six overarching areas that are initially receiving his attention: 

  1. Assure the financial base of the Foundation and, toward that end, recruit a director for Development and Communications. 

  2. Update the HOPE brand and program/geographic strategies taking into account the recently released UN Sustainability Goals (2030). Continue to have Health Affairs as a partner in the process. 

  3. Enhance stakeholder relationships including those with corporations. Will consider a satellite office in the District. 

  4. Review the current HOPE programs with an emphasis on program effectiveness, impact and capacity building potential. 

  5. Review the quality of HOPE’s technical talent at HOPE Center and in-country. 

  6. Build accountability of HOPE’s work for stakeholders and contributors.
