Our second of three incoming board members at Irish Fest is another familiar face on the Irish Fest grounds and at Irish events around town.
Please meet Jeff Slattery.
A nine year veteran volunteer of the FInance committee at Irish Fest, and co-chair of that all-important group for the past two years, Jeff brings a wealth of wealth knowledge to the big green boardroom table. As a registered 501c3 not-for-profit organization, the Kansas City Irish Fest relies on careful and thorough management of our finances and Jeff will continue to serve a key role in that area as a board member. In addition to his numbers wizardry, Jeff is a practicing attorney, has additional degrees in political science and business administration, and has served in leadership positions at the Great KC Easter Seals Society, the KC Hoops Basketball Tournament, the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce, Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association and many more organizations. In short, adding Jeff to our board raises the average IQ by a good 60 points. Jeff also has a great Irish wit, a big Irish laugh and an easy Irish smile that will serve him well at the helm of our big Irish party. He's also a handsome fella but you'll have to take my word for that because I don't have a picture of him.
Welcome to the board, Jeff. We look forward to a great five years with you in leadership. Jeff begins his tenure with the new year.
