IOCC APPOINTS NEW COMMUNICATION DIRECTOR
Baltimore (IOCC) - International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC) announces the appointment of Amal E. Morcos as its Director of Communications. Ms. Morcos will be responsible for implementing the organization's communications plan, and act as its communications liaison with other organizations.
Ms. Morcos is a 20 year communications professional who has worked at some of America's most recognizable non profit and media organizations. During her six-year tenure as Executive Director of the Atlanta Press Club, where she launched the organization's Educational Endowment Fund, it grew to become the second largest journalism association in the U.S., after the National Press Club. In 1993, Ms. Morcos was named Acting Director of Communications at the United Negro College Fund, overseeing that organization's production of print and electronic marketing materials, and its nationally recognized, award-winning public service advertising campaign. She began her career at Time Inc. Magazine Company where she worked as a fact-checker for the journalists of Life, Money and Fortune magazines.
IOCC was founded in 1992 as the official humanitarian aid agency of the Standing Conference of Canonical Orthodox Bishops in the Americas (SCOBA). Since then, it has implemented $225 million in relief and development programs in 30 countries around the world.
