Charlotte Pride welcomes new support staff

In addition to transitions in Charlotte Pride’s board leadership, Charlotte Pride is excited to announce the addition of new support staff who will help to oversee the day-to-day tasks of the organization’s growing portfolio of programs and complement the work of our dedicated volunteers.

Jerry Yelton joins the organization as our new Programs and Events Manager. Jerry will help to manage and oversee all of Charlotte Pride’s programs and volunteer committees and offer day-to-day support and coordination. Jerry will also assist in development efforts, the implementation of the organization’s strategic plan and other programmatic activities. Be sure to read more about Jerry in our first quarterly newsletter’s “Spotlight” feature.

Charlotte Pride also welcomes Matt Comer as our Communications Director. Matt joined the Charlotte Pride board in 2008 and has served in a variety of volunteer roles prior to transitioning into this new support position. Matt’s work for Charlotte Pride will include developing new communications methods as well as strengthening existing media and marketing efforts. He’ll also work with Jerry to ensure support and coordination on a variety of tasks for Charlotte Pride activities and programs.
