CASA Welcomes Lindsay Miller
Court Appointed Special Advocates of Montgomery County (CASA) is pleased to announce its recent hire of Lindsay Miller, who joins the CASA team as Creative Development Associate. Within this role, Miller will assist in the planning and execution of fundraising events, aid in furthering community outreach and awareness for the organization through social media and other methods, and help grow the organization by way of new volunteers and donors.
Introduction to CASA
Miller first learned about CASA Child Advocates of Montgomery County in early 2014 when she attended the CASA Speaks for Kids Gala. Her father-in-law had sponsored a table and gave tickets to each of the adult children as Christmas gifts the month before. Miller remembers of her first CASA gala experience, “I knew that night that someday I would get involved with CASA.”
A few years later in 2017, Miller completed training and became a volunteer Advocate. However, she soon found herself wanting to do more. “As an Advocate, I saw first-hand how important and absolutely necessary what CASA provided to these children was. I knew I wanted to be involved on a deeper level.”
Miller’s opportunity came just months later when she was asked to serve as Chair of the 2019 CASA Speaks for Kids Gala Committee.
“My proudest accomplishment at CASA is chairing the 2019 Gala,” Miller explains, “I had never planned a huge fundraiser like that before, and – with the help of a fantastic committee – we were able to execute the event well and raised record funds for CASA.”
Helping CASA grow
When asked about what she would like to see for the organization in the next 10 years, Miller shares, “I would love to see a lot more awareness for what CASA does in our community so that we can grow our volunteer and donor base, and I am looking forward to helping make that happen!”
