Business Manager (1 candidate)
I am running for the Business Manager position because I have professional experiences in managing expenses and funds for DIG. Within a year, our DIG team and I successfully acquired over $45K in revenues through sponsorships and partnerships. I am detail-oriented and well-organized, and I maintain a clear and methodical financial record-keeping system. I work with fabulous DIG executive board, directors, and committees. I would be honored to run again and look forward to the opportunity to serve DIG in new innovative ways.
Communication Manager (1 candidate)
Nicole Gleicher, originally from Maryland, works as an Accountant for the Department of Defense. Before that, she worked in the non-profit sector. She holds a Bachelor's degree in Accounting with a concentration in Communications and graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology in 2017. She is currently studying for a Master's degree in Public Administration at Old Dominion University. Nikki is the Communications Manager for DIG. In this role, she assists with social media accounts/strategies, video editing, and creates quarterly newsletters to keep our colleagues up to date on what DIG has done, is currently doing, and what is coming up. Nikki picks up some special projects, as necessary. She also assists with email communications for events. Beyond her finance and accounting knowledge, she enjoys working with people and tracking/reporting on communications with creativity and flexibility. Finally, she is a proud fur mama of two adorable cocker spaniels.
Nikki Gleicher is the Communication Manager at DIG for a year now. I consider myself a good team player with a demonstrated ability to lead, detail-oriented, and an adaptable person. I believe that by being part of the DIG Board, I would play an essential role in building relationships with internal and external groups, streamlining the communication and collaboration processes, and providing equal access.
Recording Secretary (1 candidate)
Allison is from Minnesota. She was born deaf in a hearing family. All of her school years were in a mainstream setting. She graduated from the University of Minnesota majoring in Sociology. Worked for several years in the mental health field and decided she wanted to work in the Administration setting. Allison attended Masters of Public Administration at Gallaudet University, and graduated in Spring of 2016. Right before she graduated, she was hired as a Management Analyst at the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), an agency under the US Department of Health and Human Services. Allison has been at this job for almost 5 years now.
Why do I want to run for this position? I am currently the board member for the Recording Secretary position and have been serving since January 2020 after always wanting to get involved with DIG and saw the position was open. I want to continue serving in this position because Covid put everything on hold and I haven't experienced the full community engagement potential of DIG because I know I can contribute to this organization. The recording secretary is perfect because I like to take notes and document everything that DIG does and during the meetings, as well as opportunities to get involved on different DIG projects.
