Letter From Our Co-Chairs

Dear CCT Community,

We are concerned for our clients and the communities they serve. Many of our client organizations play a supporting role in overcoming the effects of systemic racism and have been hampered, if not nearly shuttered, by COVID-19. Clients tell us they have had to cut staff and design alternative service delivery methods; they are now determining how to reopen and address the uncertain future. We believe CCT can best help by continuing to do what we do best: provide first-class, practical, actionable advice to front-line community leaders.

Looking forward, we expect that not all future consultancies will look the same as our familiar, well-honed, twopart projects. It is clear that flexibility from timing, to project focus, to scope and length will be important. We also know that our volunteers’ lives have been turned upside down, which may impact their availability.

What does this mean for CCT?
1. We are exploring several short-term, off-cycle projects with prior clients.
2. We expect our client and volunteer recruitment cycle times will be condensed in the fall.
3. We anticipate our winter/spring projects may be shorter in duration. 

CCT Board Announces New Co-Chairs

The CCT Board of Directors is pleased to announce that Lorri Veidenheimer and Lisa Coney will serve as Co-Chairs to lead the organization. Both assume their roles after having contributed to CCT over many years in various capacities. 

Volunteer Profile: Sarah Bingman Schott

Co-Chair, Client Development
Sarah has led marketing and strategic partnerships for high tech and medical device start-ups and turnarounds, both public and private, and she had a stint as an institutional fundraiser. Sarah earned her MBA in Finance from Columbia University and a BS in Chemical Engineering from MIT

Already making an impact with her contributions of time and talent, Sarah recently finished her third CCT project. She has served twice as a Project Manager and provided invaluable assistance as a member of the Client Development Committee, conducting prospective client outreach, application screening, site visits, client satisfaction interviews, and Salesforce database management. Among her other nonprofit endeavors, Sarah has served on the boards of All Newton Music School, Tutoring Plus of Cambridge, and the Friends of Weston’s Council on Aging. She has also held leadership positions and led initiatives for the Weston PTO.

Jessica Morris

Co-Chair, Volunteer Relations
At first glance, Jessica impresses as a very capable business professional with her traditional education of a BS in Psychology from Vanderbilt University and MBA from Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management. However, Jessica brings a rather unique background and diversity of experience to the CCT Board. She served in the United States Navy as a nuclear propulsion officer, specializing in the maintenance and operation of nuclear-powered aircraft carriers, and she has worked as a Real Estate Manager in Chicago. Most recently she has been Director of Application Engineering for Digital Lumens, responsible for the design, technical sales and deployment of intelligent LED lighting and energy management systems in large commercial and industrial facilities worldwide.
