Retirement Blessings

As the year comes to a close, some long-time NCDC members are moving into retirement.

Joe Voss has been a Planned Giving Officer for Mercy Home for Boys and Girls (Chicago, IL) since 2001. He has served on several boards in the not for profit sector and as a consultant in the fundraising arena.  He was an active member of the NCDC Planned Giving Group and has served on conference planning committees and has presented at multiple NCDC events.

Terry Wilcoxson has helped nonprofits conceptualize and execute successful direct mail campaigns for Concord Direct (Concord, NH). While he’s helped organizations increase sales and revenue, what he really loves taking projects from the ground up so he can help with the concept, but also dig into the data and see what worked and what needs improvement. Terry’s creativity, experience, and good-natured spirit have helped innumerable clients throughout his career.

Our best wishes and thanks to Joe and Terry for their service to their organizations and NCDC as they step into retirement.
