As the Executive Director of Greater Indiana Clean Cities, I am excited to announce the opening of our new office in Indianapolis, Indiana. The office is part of Greater Indiana’s service and outreach plan, providing even more opportunities to serve our stakeholders. Not only will the location allow Greater Indiana and its staff to better serve its members across all areas of the state, it is also housed within the same building as our long-standing partners and friends, the Indiana Corn Marketing Council and the Indiana Soybean Alliance.
As many of you know, throughout 2019 Greater Indiana and its board of directors worked to fine-tune the mission and branding of the organization, creating a new marketing roadmap to help increase outreach in 2020. The overall goal of the rebranding was to strengthen the connection and services provided to our members, while increasing outreach in the state of Indiana. To better serve the objectives of our members and stakeholders, in January of 2020, we launched our new membership levels and benefits. The new membership levels were designed to achieve positive outcomes and targeted deliverables.
While the new office is just one goal on a list of achievements towards our organization’s growth plan, we have hit a few more milestones. This past June, Greater Indiana expanded its staff adding an Events and Communications Coordinator located in Bloomington, Indiana. Soon the organization will again be adding a new member to the Greater Indiana Team, a Grants and Special Projects Coordinator, located in Lafayette, Indiana. We also host college interns who play a key role in the outreach and major projects of the organization.
With the addition of new staff members and our office in Indianapolis, Greater Indiana is covering major centers of activity in our state working with alternative fuels in cities such as Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, Lafayette, and Bloomington. We are equipped to help anyone looking to transition to an alternative fuel.
We have been able to achieve these milestones thanks in part due to the support of our members. As a 501c3, standalone nonprofit, we are not a branch or project of a private company or hosted under an umbrella organization. Every dollar we raise through memberships and services goes right back to our mission. We love the work we do in Indiana and know our work will only continue to grow as more groups lower their environmental impact through the use of alternative fuels.
