Niki McCuistion (chapter chair) took some time out to answer our questions about the SEA North Texas Chapter.
When did you become a chapter?
What has been your biggest achievement(s) since becoming a chapter?
Several substantial events, which have brought non-members and members together and has started giving us a footprint in this region as a go-to resource.
What is the social enterprise community like in your city/region? How does your chapter fit into that community?
There is a growing awareness of what social enterprise is, but it is still a new concept to many.
We as a chapter are working on enlarging/ growing through visibility.
What are you currently working on as a chapter?
Solidifying our base so we have governance- history and documents to pass on seamlessly as well as building a strong, involved board.
What are you most looking forward to for your chapter?
Getting to the next level. We are working to get commitment in order to make the many ideas we come up with actually happen.
What are your hopes and dreams for the social enterprise field in your city/region and as a whole?
For social enterprise to truly take on the substantial mantle of being a key factor in building sustainability.
Any other highlights or aspects of your chapter that you think SEA members should know about?
We're growing, solidifying, and keeping our fingers crossed. We are eager to learn more about what other chapters are doing.
