Britt Von Roden recently joined the board of the American Cancer Society (ACS) in Iowa. Von Roden is a shareholder at BerganKDV where she serves as Executive Director of People First. In her seat as a board member, Von Roden will help spread awareness of the ACS mission and boost participation in its donation campaigns and initiatives.
“The ACS board of Iowa was introduced to me through Mike Brogan, a current board member who is my former boss, close friend and mentor,” said Von Roden. “Mike is a cancer survivor and was diagnosed when I worked for him. That was a pivotal time in my career. When the chance to work with him again presented itself with the opportunity to positively impact the lives of others, it was an easy decision. As a board member, I’m most excited to use my skillset and network to help extend our reach so all who are impacted by cancer can get the help and support they absolutely need.”
The ACS is a leading cancer-fighting organization with a vision to end cancer. For over 100 years, they have been improving the lives of people with cancer and their families as the only organization combating the disease through advocacy, research, and patient support. The organization has numerous branches across the United States to localize initiatives and donation efforts.
“We are so pleased to have Britt on our ACS Iowa Area Board,” said Kevin Kann, the Executive Director of the ACS in Iowa. “She is joining a group of 12 prestigious leaders throughout the state who have ambitious plans for 2023, including increasing engagement in communities across Iowa through Coaches vs. Cancer, Men Wear Pink, Hope Lodge Heroes, and Relay for Life events. The board will focus on increasing the impact that can be made through free transportation and lodging for cancer patients throughout the state. Britt’s marketing expertise combined with her enthusiasm for the ACS mission will help make a difference in the fight against cancer!”
