Weld County, CO, May 17, 2023 – Connections for Independent Living welcomes a new member to the organization’s governing board of directors. The board approved Tim Wilson to help oversee the Greeley-based nonprofit, which assists persons living with disabling conditions in seven northeastern Colorado counties.
Wilson currently works as a Solutions Engineer with Technical Framework. He has a background in internet technology and cyber security. Tim also has experience as a sales engineer.
“I want to enable those with disabilities the opportunity to flourish in society,” Wilson explained. “We must advocate in public spaces including local businesses and government policy. We need the continued support of the services and programs that Connections is already providing.”
Along with volunteering with Connections’ board of directors, he is a Greeley Chamber of Commerce Ambassador and a greeter at his church. With his church, Tim led the preschool department consisting of paid and volunteer workers for three years. He is grateful for the opportunity to serve on Connections’ board.
Executive Director Rochelle Mitchell-Miller welcomed Wilson stating, “Connections’ volunteer board continues to grow and expand with a focus on equity, inclusion and diversity. I am excited to welcome Tim onto our board and assist him in learning about Connections and the many services and programs we offer to people living with disabilities in northeastern Colorado. Board service is such a devotion to the community, and I am always in awe of those who commit to serve in this manner.”
Wilson joins Elizabeth Mahoney, Kate Howell, Lou Steinberg, Tony Gonzalez, and Mary Jo Brockshus as directors for the organization.
