MARY BETH O’CONNOR
I was elected to the Board in 2017. I’ve been a member of the Executive Committee throughout, either as Secretary or Treasurer. As Treasurer, I led the Finance Committee and we drafted LifeRing’s first financial policy, which the Board approved in 2020. I convinced my prior law firm to accept LifeRing as a pro bono client. I worked with our attorneys to update our Bylaws, approved by the membership in 2019. I also have been the liaison to our lawyers regarding a variety of legal issues, including our trademark and IRS status. I’ve been on numerous other committees, including the Communications Committee. I recruited one of our current board members and several members who made notable contributions by serving on various committees. I value my role on the board and would welcome the opportunity to continue my efforts on behalf of LifeRing.
