Girls Inc. welcomes new board members

VISTA — Diane Woodward, president of Girls Incorporated of San Diego County, recently announced the appointment of two new board members to the nonprofit charity’s board of trustees. The organization, headquartered in Vista, provides programs and outreach to girls ages 6 to 18.
Alicia Dring of Oceanside, currently a vice president and small business relationship manager for Wa, officially joined the board in January. Dring holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology from Cal State Fullerton and an MBA from University of Redlands. Dring has more than 20 years of experience in sales, marketing and management.
“Alicia brings a solid financial and accounting background, as well as a strong community network of contacts, to support her board position,” Woodward said.
Liz Zele of San Diego, who joined the board in November 2008, will spearhead the development of a new professional women’s guild called “Girl Friends.” The guild will support GISDC efforts to inspire all girls to be strong, smart and bold, through fundraising, “friendraising” and advocacy.
