Katie assumes the role after most recently serving as the Marketing & Communications Officer with MAP International, a top ranked global Christian health and relief organization www.map.org.
“Katie was chosen from a strong field of exceptional candidates because of her extensive marketing and fundraising background, as well as a passion for land preservation in our communities. We are confident that she will lead the Southern Conservation Trust in protecting new land and developing environmentally sound programs and initiatives in the many communities we serve,” said Tami Morris, Board Chairman.
While at MAP, Pace managed programs and processes internationally and saw firsthand how local conditions affected the quality of life for individuals and communities. Her global-local perspective and strong desire to make a difference at home are a good fit for SCT as it begins an anticipated rise in land protection for individual and organizational land owners, said Morris.
“I’m honored to be selected by the SCT Board as the new Executive Director.” said Pace. ” I’m excited for the opportunity to work with the amazing communities where we protect land, wildlife and vital water sources to ensure they are around for many years to come. I look forward to building upon the strong foundation already established in Fayette County and the surrounding areas. My goal is to increase the protection and education of land, wildlife, and water conservation in the Southern Crescent that the Southern Conservation Trust is able to protect in the great state of Georgia,” said Pace.
A graduate of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Pace has 10 years of experience in the nonprofit world focused on marketing, branding, digital engagement, fundraising, writing, and humanitarian photography. Katie lives in Newnan, Georgia with her fiance, two dogs, and three cats.
