Cynthia A Walters, MSSW, ACNP
Cindy Walters is a graduate of the American Humanics degree program (now called the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance).
It is her wide and varied experience, including working for national affiliates (American Red Cross, Camp Fire Inc., American Cancer Society, YWCA), and local independent agencies (Women’s Resource Agency, and Lena Pope Home and the Golden Key Honour Society), that gives her the depth and breadth to find solutions to build stronger agencies.
After receiving her Master of Science in Social Work - Planning and Administration she began her career as an Executive Director. She served as Executive Director for three organizations in three locations, including ten years as the ED/CEO of the American Red Cross of North Texas.
At one time, she was considering returning to school to get a doctoral degree to teach others about the nonprofit profession. She realized she would rather work directly with Executive Directors of small nonprofits and their leadership to provide training and support. It was the actual implementation rather than the academic theory that helped her build capacity for the organizations she served as Executive Director. It was relationships, systems and resources that allowed her to succeed.
Cindy states “My passion and mission are to help Executive Directors and agency leadership build the capacity to create solid organizations, to better serve, and show the impact they are having on their clients, to their funding sources. I want to help you!”
