STATEWIDE– Colorado Veterans Projectone of Colorado’s largest veteran-related nonprofits, announced its new board positions and the following members: Greg Moore, Shane Thomas, Todd Youngblood, Bobbi Mastalka and Ian Boyce.
After serving as Vice President, Moore was elected Chairman of the Board of Directors, where he will lead the team in building a stronger, more cohesive community around veterans. Moore served in the US Army as a military intelligence officer, touring Iraq and Afghanistan. He is also active in a number of veteran-related initiatives, such as Team Red, White and Blue, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1 in Denver and more.
Moore said, “It is truly an honor to lead this talented team of people to strengthen our veteran community. Our goal is to encourage conversation with veterans and raise awareness of veteran issues throughout Colorado by hosting events, which also raise funds for our local veterans and their veteran organizations.
Thomas, a former chief operating officer, has accepted the position of executive director of the board and will organize the exceptional events organized by CVP. He served as a communications technician in the US Air Force and participated in two missions, one in Afghanistan and the other in Haiti. Thomas first became involved with CVP in 2019 as COO and created the first annual Let Freedom Swing Golf Tournament which raised over $30,000. Its objective will be to increase the number of events organized by CVP.
Youngblood will transition from chairman of the board to chief revenue officer, where he will help the organization expand its fundraising capabilities to continue providing financial support to local veterans organizations. He served in the United States Navy aboard the USS Arkansas and is also a veteran of the Colorado National Guard. In 2010, he became a nonprofit volunteer and identified a significant funding disparity for Denver veterans, inspiring him to close the gap by joining the CVP team.
Mastalka took on the role of operations coordinator, in addition to her position as head of board relations. This position will allow her to assist with marketing and event planning for CVP. A volunteer for CVP since 2014, she has also served on the board of directors for four years. Coming from a military family, she shares a passion for helping veterans.
Boyce, CVP’s newest board member, has accepted the role of treasurer for the organization, after being inspired to join CVP after participating in the 2021 Denver Veterans Day Run. He served in the United States Navy from 2004 to 2015 and in his new role at CVP, he will oversee all finances and help CVP continue to grow.
