Lee College Director of Foundation and Donor Development Pam Warford was recently named president of the Texas Association of Community College Foundations (TACCF).

Designed for community college foundation board members, executives and volunteers, TACCF serves as a resource for best practices, relationship building between colleagues in the same industry, and offers opportunities for professional development.

There are currently 50 community colleges in Texas, 47 of which have foundations.

Warford previously served as treasurer of the organization for three years before being elected president. In her new position, she will be responsible for overseeing the organization’s strategic plan, expanding membership, organizing the annual conference and guiding board activities. Her term expires in 2015.

“For Pam to be recognized by her peers like this is so fitting,” said Mary Ann Amelang, executive director of Institutional Advancement at Lee College. “She is one of the most effective foundation directors in the nation and constantly works to ensure that the Lee College Foundation’s policies and practices are up to date and in line with best practices.  Her efforts are evident in the growth of the foundation’s corpus, which is now over $7.5 million.”
