Meet a Board Member: Amy Conroy
I’m Amy Conroy, a proud Wonders parent with a son, Tomas, in 5th grade at Chevy Chase. I’m also a member of the Wonders board of directors and chair the marketing committee.
I can’t believe that my family has been part of the Wonders community for 7 years. I still remember my son’s first day at Leland Children’s Center, where he was welcomed with caring and loving arms. He really grew up that year – he met his best friend (who is still his best friend), he learned the skills needed to succeed in kindergarten (no small task for an active kid who doesn’t like to sit still), and he learned to share and care for others. As someone who has spent her professional life advancing social justice issues, I was thrilled to find a childcare center with an educational program based on play (the creative curriculum) and a mission based on fairness and equality.
I joined the board three years ago. Since I have primarily worked on national issues (ranging from women’s political leadership to environmental action to nonprofit advocacy), I was looking for an opportunity to give back to my local community, and Wonders provided that opportunity. Its been a very rewarding experience. I have met, and work with, some amazing parents and community leaders on the board. It’s been fascinating to participate in a strategic planning process, and now help to implement that plan. As you can imagine, the marketing committee is very busy as we work on messaging and promoting Wonders to a diverse community. We can always use extra hands (and you don’t need to be on the board to join the committee), so if you’re interested in learning more about the committee please be in touch. We have some ambitious goals that make our work fun, challenging, and rewarding.
