Pat Lopez, director of human resources, in July joined the national board of directors for the Community Health Charities of America, a federation of more than 50 national health charities funded by private and public workplace giving campaigns.
Lopez already has been actively involved in the organization, previously serving as a chair for the Texas CHC affiliate. She was selected to the national board based on her past experience and knowledge.
“With her solid judgment and deep insights, Pat will be an outstanding member of the board,” says Thomas G. Boganno, president and CEO of the organization. “Knowing Pat and the efficient manner in which she utilizes teamwork, I am confident CHC will continue to prosper.”
As a board member, Lopez will participate in quarterly meetings throughout the fiscal year, starting with the board’s first meeting in Virginia on Sept. 18. She will help in decision-making for the CHC’s 46 offices nationwide and distribution of more than $60 million to health charities that improve the lives of those affected by a chronic disease or disability.
CHC Texas includes more than 50 health charities such as regional offices for the American Cancer Society, Muscular Dystrophy Association and Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. One of the ways CHC receives funding is from donations during Texas’ State Employee Charitable Campaign.
