Who I Am
My name is Craig Howard
I have worked in and around nonprofit organizations since 1998, when I co-founded the Northwest Parkinson's Foundation.
Since 2005 I have been an active board member on the board of The Museum of Flight in Seattle, the largest private air and space museum in the world with an annual budget of over $30 million. I am the immediate past chair of the Nominating and Governance committee, and served for a year as interim Vice President of Development in 2009 during the great recession. I also served for five years as the Chair of the board's Development committee.
I am currently the founding Chair of the Georgetown Community Development Authority, which now has assets, cash, and commitments of $50 mil to build workforce housing and artisan workspace in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle. This will become the long needed living and working anchor for arts and artists in Seattle.
I attended Chapman University for two years, and have a B.S. in Journalism from the University of Colorado. I'm active as a private pilot, an Advanced EMT, and an artist working in metals.
