Use this information to drive a cycle of continuous improvement in editorial content throughout CHM.

  • Serve as an advocate for CHM’s audience, ensuring everyone in the organization understands their needs and driving strategies that help us grow their ranks and deepen our impact.
  • Oversee projects that support Marketing and Development needs, such as campaigns to drive attendance at events; reports to donors; the development of impact stories; and the annual report.
  • Explore and build editorial partnerships that broaden CHM’s reach and impact.
  • Build, implement, and manage the organization’s social media goals and strategy.
  • Support the infusion of high standards for inclusion, diversity, equity, and access into the content CHM produces.
