Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Non-Profit Organization in Muskegon:
Pros: The Boys and Girls Club allows me to be the energetic and outgoing person I am. The Club gives me the ability to work in teams, forge relationships, as well as to give others direction and inspiration. Experience in the field and learning from senior Boys & Girls Club leaders has lead me to understand the importance of goals and the steps necessary to achieve them.

The club gives me the ability to build and cultivate relationships, which is one of my greatest qualities and proven to be a necessity to the growth of any new organizations.
Cons: The Boys & Girls Club has many rewards but every reward comes with a price. Often times you can feel all alone, as the CEO position is often stuck between the board and the staff.
