Our Team

Nationally, in March 2010, the American Humanics Board of Directors moved to change the name of our organization to the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance, making the relationship between our name and our mission unmistakable.

On the local level, the David M. Underwood Chapter of the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance currently has a team of two. This dynamic duo continues the American Humanic traditions by offering “a safe place to fail your way to success” while building future Certified Nonprofit Professionals (CNPs).

Melanie Barr Fitzpatrick, MSW
Program Director
Melanie brings a wealth of knowledge from her nonprofit community experiences as well as her previous work at the University of Houston.  Her passion and commitment will clearly benefit this chapter of the Alliance on all levels.

Amber Rangel, BBA, CNP
Program Coordinator
As a UH & NLA alumna, Amber directly engages students throughout their firsthand experience in the NLA program.
