Christine (Chris) James‐Brown, President/CEO
Child Welfare League of America
Chris leads the nation’s oldest and largest
membership‐based child welfare organization.
She previously held CEO positions in United Way
at the local and international levels. Chris says “I
wandered into nonprofit work. At the time I started my career,
I had very little understanding of the sector and its importance.
The missions of the organizations that I have worked for and
the variety of people from all walks of life that I have been able
to meet, make this work so fulfilling.”
Byron Haverstick, Senior District Executive
Boy Scouts of America
Armed with a Bachelor’s in Human Service
Agency Management and certification from
American Humanics, Bryon serves the Greater
St. Louis Area Boy Scouts of America. He started his nonprofit
career as a volunteer basketball coach and public address
announcer for the Boys & Girls Club. Bryon grew up in a Boys
and Girls Club and knows the positive impact the staff had on
his life. He says, “The rewards are endless. Seeing a Scout earn
his Eagle Scout badge or a smile on the face of a Tiger Scout
working on a craft makes all of the work worthwhile. It’s
building character while having fun!”
