Nonprofits First, the leading resource for strengthening the administrative and operational capacity of nonprofit organizations in the community, has promoted Trudy Crowetz to the position of CEO.
Crowetz has been serving as interim CEO anticipating the retirement of Jessica Cecere from the organization. Crowetz has been involved in nonprofit leadership for more than 25 years. She is a certified public accountant who has served as the chief financial officer for several nonprofit organizations.

She is a graduate of the Nonprofits First 2014 Rising Leaders program.
Crowetz strives to be a servant leader who puts the needs of others first. She served in the emergency operations center during two hurricanes, and she was instrumental in assisting the county with securing volunteers and medical staff to serve in shelters. She later received recognition from the county as being a “Hero of the Storm.”
Crowetz has a long list of accomplishments in leadership, including being chosen as the Nonprofit Professional of the Year in 2022 at the Hats Off Awards.
