5th VP – Membership
Karen estimates that she has been “a member of this wonderful organization for about 30 years.” She has been involved in volunteer work in Dallas for many years, having served in several leadership capacities including President of Easter Seals, 500, Inc, and the Symphony League. She also chaired the Symphony Ball. She has been working for the Dallas Arboretum for 18 years as the buyer for the Gift Shop, director for Friends trips and leader of various activities – including nine years as director of the Tour des Fleurs race. She loves to read, travel and do needlepoint.
Chairing membership is a multi-faceted job. This year, with five different groups that make up the DCMSA&F membership, she will oversee renewal and new member campaigns in the style that best suits each of the groups of various overall demographics. She has five group chairs working under her leadership.
