NATIONAL FRIENDS OF PUBLIC BROADCASTING ELECT AMANDA GORDON AS NEW TRUSTEE
Vegas PBS Volunteer Specialist To Serve On Organization’s Conference Committee
(Las Vegas) – Vegas PBS Volunteer Specialist Amanda Gordon was elected to serve a three-year term as a trustee on the National Friends of Public Broadcasting. Gordon joins Vegas PBS General Manager Tom Axtell and long-time Southern Nevada Public Television members Charlotte Hill and Reggie Burton in serving with the organization.
The National Friends of Public Broadcasting is a resource that connects public broadcasting volunteer managers and volunteers to their public media colleagues around the country. The mission of the organization is to support volunteerism within public broadcasting through leadership, education, training, mentoring and recognition.
“I find it essential to be part of an organization that understands the unique needs and demands of public media volunteers,” Gordon said. “Without the continued support and dedication of our volunteers, we would not be able to reach as many people, connect resources to the community or share as many opportunities to partner with businesses and corporations. For these reasons, I am humbled to accept the position as a trustee with National Friends of Public Broadcasting.”
Joining Vegas PBS in 2014, Gordon is responsible for managing and coordinating a volunteer base of 150 individual members in addition to group and corporate volunteers. She regularly volunteers with the Las Vegas Rotary Club and the Salvation Army of Southern Nevada and is a member of the Junior League of Las Vegas, where she has served as a committee chair for two years.
