Our Leader

This past year has been a time of great change and growth for American Humanics.

Nationally, in March 2010, after almost two years of study, 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 welcomed Melanie Barr Fitzpatrick as our new 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.
