Cindy Christy

Biography:

As the Events and Logistics Manager, my primary roles are face-to-face meeting, conferencing, and training planning. I am skilled in hotel contracting, logistical planning, and onsite logistics specialist. In addition, I am highly skilled in virtual events such as webinar production. My skills include registration building, event marketing, scheduling and hosting live webinar events as well as postproduction.

As a person in long-term recovery, I advocate for state and local community services and supports for people with and/or recovering from substance use disorders. I have worked closely with the Office of National Drug Control Policy’s Learning Community through my work at the Addiction Technology Transfer Center.  I have been instrumental in bringing a National Recovery Month Event to the Kansas City. I have spoken as a person in recovery on local television and testified in 2013 at the state senate appropriations committee meeting for the state of Missouri. I have been involved in local fund raising and awareness raising events for First Call (formerly NCADD) of Kansas City.
