In previous years it has consisted of a top 50 list, but this year the most influential has been reduced to the top 25. Similarly, in past years readers could submit up to 10 names: this year it is down to three, with the option of adding an explanation as to why they are being nominated.The poll is open for four weeks from today. The list will be published in the July print edition of Fundraising Magazine and online. This typically coincides with the Institute of Fundraising’s Fundraising Convention in London, the largest conference for fundraisers in the UK.The poll results are often analysed for what they say about the fundraising sector, or at least about those in the sector who make nominations. The female v male ratio (in a sector in which 77% of roles are taken by women, according to Dr Beth Breeze), the consultancy v charity fundraiser ratio, and the diversity or lack of it.The poll has experienced efforts to hijack it to make a particular point. ‘The Donor’ was the winner in 2009. In other years, winners have included Joe Saxton, Richard Taylor and Mark Astarita.Stephen Cotterill, editor of Fundraising Magazine, noted the opportunity afforded by the poll to highlight changemakers. He said: “It would be great see some new faces make it onto the list this year. Who is driving the diversity agenda? Who is forging innovation? Who are the upcoming stars making a real impact? Remember, this a public vote so you can help push the reset button on fundraising and shine the spotlight on those who are forcing change.”The Most Influential 2018 poll closes on 10 May 2018.

Pike County economy strong in 2011

first_img Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day By The Penny Hoarder Brundidge Mayor Jimmy Ramage is also looking for a prosperous New Year based on increased sales tax revenue and the expansion of local industries.“Our sales tax revenue was up $59,000 in 2011 and that means that local businesses are doing better,” Ramage said. “The low rate of employment in Pike County supports that the existing businesses are able to maintain their employees and that’s especially good during these economic times.”Ramage said that the city’s two food industries, Southern Classic Foods and Supreme Oil, have both increased production as has Brundidge Electronics Corporation.“When industries increase production that’s a very positive sign,” he said. “With increased production comes the probability of new jobs.” Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Email the author Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Latest Stories By Jaine Treadwell Pike County economy strong in 2011 Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Around the WebDoctor: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Health VideosIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

We have been very fortunate that Pike County’s unemployment rate has ranked between number three and four in the state the past three years and has recently dropped to 6.6 percent. That is due to the fact that our businesses are holding their own and to the expansion of several of our existing industries. We are blessed to have not lost businesses and to have been able to recruit two major businesses in the last two years, Golden Boy and CGI.” Troy Mayor Jimmy Lunsford said, too, that the recruitment of Golden Boy Foods, which will produce peanut butter initially and, by the middle of 2012, also run a line of almond butter, is a good thing.“With the downturn in the economy, Golden Boy came on board and helped make 2011 an unbelievable year for Troy and Pike County,” Lunsford said. “The expansion at KW Plastics, equipment and all, will be several million dollars and that will have a big impact on the local economy.”Lunsford said CGI continues to grow, now with 200 employees.“When you have companies like CGI, Sikorsky Support Services and Lockheed that continue to create jobs and positively impact the community, that is an indication that the economic future is bright,” Lunsford said. “The future is bright for Troy, also, in that we also have two promising retail prospects. And, with the completion of a new library, public works facility and nutrition center for our seniors, we are looking forward to a prosperous New Year.” Ramage said the city’s utility rates remained steady during 2011, the addition to the public library was completed and the city was able to purchase the old doctor’s building for use as a mini-courthouse.“We got another L.E.D. grant and that was positive and we finally completed our planning grant and it will be implemented in 2012, so we are looking forward to a prosperous New Year in Brundidge and all of Pike County.” Book Nook to reopen Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… Published 10:15 am Friday, December 30, 2011 Sponsored Content You Might Like Chamber announces new board of directors The Pike County Chamber of Commerce has announced its executive board and board of directors for 2012.
