The Board of Directors of the Midlands Mediation Center, a non-profit conflict resolution organization serving central South Carolina since 1998, announces the selection of Kabrina Bass as its new Executive Director effective September 4, 2018.
The Midlands Mediation Center’s Board of Directors spent several months evaluating the organizations’ leadership needs and the future of the Center. “After assessing our needs, and then a robust regional search and selection process for our next executive director, it was apparent that Kabrina’s passion for community, leadership, and organizational development, as well as her skills and experience, is what we now need to lead the Midlands Meditation Center forward” says Board Chair Shawn Reeves.
Kabrina has a bachelor’s degree in religion with a minor in communication from Columbia College and a master’s degree in religion from Lutheran Theological Seminary. Her 16 years in community-building, nonprofit organizational management, training, professional development, marketing and communication, as well as owning her own business are all skills the Midlands Mediation Center will utilize going forward.
“I am excited to be bringing my experience, passion and desire for making a global difference, one community at a time to the important work that the Midlands Mediation Center does. It is so important to bring people together to engage in conversations that resolve conflicts, improve relationships and strengthen community,” says Kabrina Bass.
She follows Diane Frea, who served as the former Executive Director for nearly three years. Diane was successful at strengthening MMC’s operations, training, fundraising and so much more. She supported the search for a new executive director and will remain involved with MMC in a training and advisory capacity from her new home in Alabama.
We will be providing a number of opportunities to meet Kabrina in the near future.
The Midlands Mediation Center celebrates 20 years of service in 2018. A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization,
MMC uses trained volunteers to provide mediation services on a sliding scale and conflict management services
to individuals and organizations in central South Carolina.
