Washington, DC — The National Consumers League (NCL) has named Amy Sonderman Vice President, Strategic Alliances and Development, effective September 1. In her new capacity, Sonderman will direct NCL’s fundraising strategy and external partnerships. NCL is the nation’s pioneering consumer and labor advocacy organization, founded in 1899 and headquartered in Washington, DC.
Sonderman succeeds former Vice President of Development Larry Bostian, who has been named Senior Advisor to Executive Director Sally Greenberg.
“We are thrilled to have Amy assume this leadership position for our organization,” said Greenberg. “Her dedication to NCL’s mission and proven track record of creating lasting relationships with external partners will benefit our numerous programs and initiatives.”
“Making the marketplace and workplace safer for consumers and workers is a large and long-term challenge, and no one organization can do it alone,” said Sonderman. “I am proud to lead NCL’s efforts to forge partnerships and gather support from labor organizations, responsible corporate partners, and fellow advocates to advance such an important mission.”
“I congratulate Amy, and I'm grateful for the chance to take on this new role,” said Bostian. “I look forward to continuing to contribute to NCL's mission while increasing my volunteer involvement in addiction recovery.”
Sonderman was previously Director of Partnerships and Development at NCL. Before joining NCL in 2011, she worked in fundraising at the Muscular Dystrophy Association and at the Girl Scouts of America. She also previously served as the Associate Executive Director at the Greater Pittston YMCA, where she began her nonprofit career. Sonderman graduated with honors from University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a degree in Political Science and earned a Masters in Public Administration from Marywood University. She is a member of the National Honor Society for Public Affairs and Administration and the Association of Fundraising Professionals.
As Senior Advisor, Bostian will continue to work in fundraising and assist Greenberg on special projects and assignments.
