CNM Board Updates for 2023

Board Governance

July 17, 2023

CNM is pleased to introduce our new Board Chair, Charles Sueing (Sueing Insurance Agency), and three NEW board members to our CNM team! Please welcome Tyra Palmer (Retired Ardent Health Services), Megan Pratt (Ingram Industries), and Joseph Underwood (Tractor Supply Company). Their skills and expertise will help cultivate CNM’s growth as we continue supporting nonprofits, their partners, and their communities.

Reflecting on the past four years, we are deeply grateful to outgoing Board Chair, Trace Blankenship, for his leadership and support throughout the pandemic and during our recent transitions. We also have six outstanding board members concluding terms this month. Thank you to Chip Blaufuss (HCA Healthcare), Valencia Breckenridge (GraceWorks Ministries), Bob Cooper (Bass, Berry & Sims PLC), Alex Jahangir, MD (Vanderbilt University Medical Center), Cristina Oakley (Caliente Consulting, LLC), and Bill Purcell (Frost Brown Todd LLC).

Throughout their tenure, their willingness to lend time, expertise, and resources has been crucial in shaping CNM and empowering us to navigate challenges and seize opportunities that have come our way. Their work will continue to impact CNM, shaping its future for another 37 years. We have deep gratitude and appreciation for their exemplary service.
