Candis Turner Milbourne

Office seeking election: Financial Secretary

  • Occupation: Business Owner - Skin Care Therapist

  • Year of Graduation: 1983

Seeking re-election to current position of Financial Secretary.  Resides in the DMV area of the east coast, worked over 25 yrs. in Corp America in the areas of Finance/Contracts and Project Control. Has served in multiple leadership positions in many community and non-profit organizations (following non-profit organizations) to include the immediate past First Vice President of the Annapolis Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta, Sorority, Inc. (Beta Gamma, Fall 1981).

 

Special Skills: Great attention to detail; Interpersonal relationships on various levels ("plays well with others")

Why I wish to serve: Dillard University is the foundation of my professional career.  Upon acceptance at DU, I was given the University Scholar award.  It's my duty to give back!  Having been appointed to the DUNAA Financial Secretary office upon the vacating of the position by a previous alum, I have come to understand the inner workings of the Association and have developed a camaraderie with the Board members.  I have worked very closely with the current 2nd VP and Membership Committee Chair, Shirley Williams Kane.   I hope to continue this bonded relationship into the future as she seeks the role of President during this election campaign. In an atmosphere of constant change, the importance of some continuity is a bit overlooked.  My experience has proven it's vital the Financial Secretary, 2nd VP, President, and Treasurer speak the same "language" and act on one accord in the continued development, promotion, and execution of the legacy of DUNAA. I wish to improve upon the processes we have working and eliminate/scale back those that are obsolete. DUNAA has been, is, and will continue to be relevant to all alums! Bleu Devils forever!
