At the June Annual Meeting and Luncheon, Assistance League of Sacramento awarded its first Anne Banning Leadership Award to Charlotte Stott. Named for the founder of Assistance League, the award demonstrates the importance and value of leadership to Assistance League chapters, and communicates the accomplishments and dedication of the recipient.
Charlotte is a twelve-year member of Assistance League and has been a catalyst for growth and change since joining the chapter. She initiated the relocation and the purchase of the chapter’s first building and property. While serving as resale shop manager, the chapter moved into its newly purchased building. Charlotte moved fixtures and contents and re-opened the store, and at the same time increased store revenue by 18% in that fiscal year.
In 2017, she chaired a Special Committee to study community needs relating to program expansion, which resulted in the chapter’s establishment of two new programs addressing sex trafficking, homelessness and foster youth aging out of care. She has served on six chapter committees and chaired three of them. While chairing, the Fresh Start program, which addresses needs of victims of sex trafficking and foster youth transitioning to independent living, she doubled the number of agencies served and increased services to include Newborn Essentials for foster women giving birth and Street Outreach packages to women are being sex trafficked.
Charlotte has served as Correspondence Secretary, VP Communications (three times), VP Resource Development, President-Elect and President of Assistance League of Sacramento. She served two years on the National Assistance League Board in the role of Vice President of Administration. She also served on the Public Relations, Corporate Marketing, Corporate Finance, Chapter Growth and Chapter Services Committees. She currently serves as the National Brand Specialist.
We are proud to have awarded Charlotte Stott our chapter’s very first Anne Banning Leadership Award.
