David Beck Named President of N.C. Center for Voter Education
RALEIGH – David Beck has been named as the new board president of the N.C. Center for Voter Education, succeeding outgoing President Devon White.
“We are profoundly grateful for the wonderful work done by Devon White during her time as board president and we’re so happy to have yet another great president in David Beck,” said Damon Circosta, executive director of the Center. “For years, David has been a tremendous supporter of the Center’s work to empower voters.”
Beck is Director of Policy and Media at Self-Help, a leading national Community Development Financial Institution whose mission is to create and protect ownership opportunities for individuals and businesses traditionally underserved by conventional lenders.
Before joining Self-Help in 1998, he spent four years as a director at a legislative monitoring firm and four years working for Rep. David Price in Washington, D.C. He graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1989.
Joining Beck as part of the board’s leadership team is Vice President Mary Morgan, daughter of founding board president and former U.S. Senator Robert Morgan. Elaine Whitford will continue to serve as board treasurer.
“With such a dedicated leadership team, our organization is well-positioned to continue to serve the citizens of North Carolina going into a momentous election year,” Circosta said.
Other board members for 2012 include Elizabeth Dove, Michael Flatow, Melanie Wade Goodwin, Jarvis Hall, Grier Martin, Bruce Thompson and Devon White.
Founded in 1999, the Raleigh-based N.C. Center for Voter Education is a nonprofit and nonpartisan organization, dedicated to helping citizens more fully participate in democracy.
