Helping Neighbors: The Results Are In — Meet Your New Board Members!
By almost every measurement 2015 was a very successful year for F.I.S.H. as we experienced unparalleled growth in service to meet the needs of our increasing client base, and we continued to be good stewards of the generous financial support we received from individual donors and organizations. This good stewardship of funds enabled us to purchase our new office building at 2430-B Periwinkle Way in December 2014, and after six months of renovation work we were able to move into our new building. The increased space we enjoy in our new Walk-In Center allows us to provide many more services for our community.
We have a dedicated Board of Directors who continually provides the support needed to meet the increasing challenges we face. The Director Nominating Committee recommended that the following be elected as new Directors, each for a three-year term beginning January 1, 2016 and ending December 31, 2018. We are pleased to welcome Chris Coile and Sheridan Snell to the F.I.S.H. of Sanibel-Captiva Board of Directors.
Chris Coile founder, CEO & President of Chris Coile & Assoc. Real Estate Company and Champion Realty, based in Maryland. Chris and Susan moved to Sanibel where Chris has been very active with both fishing and F.I.S.H. Chris has also been a musician/entertainer for many years and gives performances each year to benefit F.I.S.H. of SANCAP. Chris assisted F.I.S.H. in marketing efforts, including its rebranding, and strategic planning.
Sheridan Snell has had a full and varied career in voluntarism. She and her husband Dick have always given back to every community in which they have lived with a strong connection in the social services sector. “F.I.S.H. is a wonderful organization where we can embrace its goals and objectives and lend a helping hand to our island residents and workers. I hope to make a difference,” says Sheridan.
