NEW YORK, Nov. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- For 138 years American Humane Association has been at the forefront of the humane movement in the United States, and in 2016 America's first national humane organization will launch an ambitious capital campaign to ensure a better future for future generations of America's children and animals. Such a campaign requires visionary leadership and today American Humane Association announced that Amanda Bowman, an international leader in corporate, social and philanthropic issues who currently serves on the organization's board of directors, will chair the American Humane Association Capital Campaign.
Ms. Bowman is the founder of the Anglosphere Society, an independent, non-profit, educational membership organization whose goal is to reinforce the special relationship between the English-speaking peoples of the world. She is also a board member elect of the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund whose mission is to help our military suffering from Traumatic Brain Injury and Post Traumatic Stress.
For eight years, Ms. Bowman worked on developing security policy for a number of organizations, helping raise substantial funding to focus on policing terrorism and the home-grown threats. In that capacity, she worked collaboratively with policy organizations and law enforcement in both the United States and the United Kingdom. In recent years, Ms. Bowman has organized more than 20 successful conferences and policy events on both sides of the Atlantic. She has 25 years' experience in corporate, philanthropic and consumer public relations, specializing in managing policy issues and public affairs.
A devoted dog lover, Ms. Bowman and her husband have two Dalmatians, six grown children and four grandchildren.
"We are honored that Amanda Bowman will be leading this essential new campaign" said Dr. Robin Ganzert, American Humane Association's president and CEO. "Her years of leadership in the highest corporate, social and philanthropic circles will help this vitally important campaign succeed and will help us continue our role as a leader in the humane movement."
