ECA Hires Development Officer
April 3, 2018
We are excited to welcome a new addition to the Eugene Civic Alliance staff. Chis Yorges joins ECA as our new Development Officer. Chris brings a rich and varied professional background along with deep community roots. A Eugene resident since 1973, he has owned several successful businesses, served in various leadership and management roles and taught business and finance classes at NCU.
In his new role, Chris will assist ECA board members and leadership team members in scheduling, conducting, and following up on meetings with potential donors. He will also work to create new donors partnerships between ECA and local businesses, organizations, and individuals. As a former Kidsports athlete, father of three, longtime runner, and current track and field coach for Churchill High School, Chris recognizes the significant benefits children can gain through athletic participation. He believes Civic Park can play a significant role in increasing access to sports and recreation for local youth and adults.
