Dear Colleagues –
I am delighted to announce that Patti McLaughlin has been promoted to the position of Associate Director, Law Annual Giving effective May 1, 2013. Patti will report to the Director of Recognition Societies when that position is filled, and will report to me in the interim. Patti will be responsible for the general management of the Notre Dame Law School’s Order of St. Thomas More (OSTM) Recognition Society and Annual Fund including designing, planning, and executing fund-raising programs, marketing communications, volunteer engagement, brand management and the donor experience required to achieve the revenue and participation plans for OSTM and the Law School Annual Fund. This position works closely with the Dean, Associate Deans, Alumni Relations Manager, and Directors at the Law School to plan and achieve the goals for OSTM and the Law School Annual Fund.
Patti most recently served as a Coordinator Annual Giving with responsibility for development of marketing and communications collateral, writing and editing communications, e-communications approvals and the communications calendar. Patti’s work on process improvements in her greenbelt project assignment have had significant positive impacts on Annual Giving Programs, specifically in the area of e-mail approval process definition and performance, as well as direct marketing effectiveness and optimization. Patti has a great love of Notre Dame and has demonstrated tremendous commitment to its mission and the performance required to achieve excellence in the work of Annual Giving Programs.
Patti received her BA in Spanish and Political Science from Wellesley College and her J.D. from the University of Notre Dame Law School. Patti started her career as an attorney at Carter, Ledyard and Milburn in New York. Prior to joining the staff at Notre Dame, she taught Spanish at multiple institutions of Catholic education.
Patti and her husband Michael have three wonderful children Tommy (age 15), Daisy (age 14) and Maggie (age 11).
Please join me in congratulating Patti on her promotion.
In Notre Dame,
Sr. Director, Annual Giving Programs
