Outreach Team Lead
Cindy Pao is the self-proclaimed “queen of reaching out and touching you” on the Outreach Team. While specific details have not been released, members of the outreach team will liaise with chapters within a geographic region (similar to the STC regions of old). The outreach team’s job is to help communication flow from the chapters to the Board to the Office. Members of the team can provide one-on-one support, be a sounding board for ideas, or act as coach and cheerleader for community leaders and volunteers.
