Over the past several years, Orlando After-School All-Stars (ASAS) has experienced significant expansion of its student services as a result of successful grants management and student achievement. To build upon these successes, in 2015 the Orlando ASAS Board of Directors voted to allocate sufficient non-profit funding to cover the cost of a full time ASAS Director of External Affairs. The position is responsible for donor development, external relations and fundraising, and operates under the direction of Tyler Chandler, the ASAS State Director.
On February 8, 2016, Orlando City Council approved the employment agreement for Ms. Star Hudspath, to serve as the ASAS Director of External Affairs. Ms. Hudspath directs and coordinates the development and execution of the ASAS Orlando fundraising plan and is responsible for maintaining relationships with government, foundations, and individual partners, as well as raising public awareness of ASAS.
By approving this contract, the City of Orlando will extend Ms. Hudspath contract through the coming fiscal year. The City will incur no new financial obligations as a result of this Agreement. The Orlando ASAS non-profit will reimburse the City of Orlando for any and all costs associated with this position.
