Anne Roberts joins OKCNP as VP of Resource Development
The Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits (OKCNP) announced that Anne Roberts has joined its leadership team as Vice President of Resource Development this week.
Roberts has more than 30 years of experience in nonprofit leadership, fundraising, advocacy and lobbying. Her most recent role was as the Director of Legislative Affairs with INTEGRIS Health for 10 years. Prior to that, she worked as Executive Director of the Oklahoma Institute for Child Advocacy.
“Anne has dedicated her life to nonprofits, particularly advocacy,” Marnie Taylor, President and CEO, said. “She has a long history with OKCNP. We are very excited to come on board at a time when OKCNP is experiencing incredible growth.”
Roberts has also received numerous awards and accolades for her work in advocacy and nonprofit leadership. In her career, she was appointed to a number of legislative councils on healthcare and children’s issues. She is a graduate of Leadership Oklahoma, and received their Distinguished Graduate Award in 2010. That same year, she was named one of Oklahoma’s Most Admired CEOs by the Journal Record.
Roberts holds undergraduate and a master’s degrees in music. An accomplished singer, she studied opera in Europe and continues to perform today, most recently with the Oklahoma City Philharmonic and Canterbury Voices.
