It’s a role that requires diplomacy.
Nicole Amor is Economic Alliance Snohomish County’s investor relations and events manager.
In the position, she helps hold more than 50 events a year ranging from large-room meetings to expos with hundreds of people. She’s the one who is working with venue management, attendees and guest speakers to make sure the events go off without a hitch.
“This includes task delegation, writing out agendas and scripts and being able to tactfully manage volunteers,” Amor writes. “In my role, I have grown our event revenue and attendance year after year.”
She’s also coordinating with chambers of commerce around the county, distributing Economic Alliance’s weekly email to more than 8,000 people and developing marketing material for the group that aims to attract and support business to the county.
Her professional work is only part of her community commitment. She donates time to United Way of Snohomish County’s CORE Engagement Committee and Young Leaders United, which seeks to encourage young professionals to volunteer and discussing topics such as racial equity.
She’s also volunteered for five years at Bethany of the Northwest’s Taste of the Northwest Auction and has served on a planning committee for Institute of Flight events.
Professionally, she wants to make lasting impact in the county.
”My personal vision is to act in a way that fosters my daughter’s social, emotional, and academic growth while providing love, support and stability as she develops her sense of self and personality,” Amor said.
