As a key member of the Chamber team, Stock will be responsible for relaunching the Leadership Mahoning Valley program, which has been on hiatus since 2020 due to the COVID pandemic. She will also be responsible for starting the new Center for Nonprofit Excellence that will provide professional development opportunities and resources to area nonprofit organizations.

Overall, she has led the efforts to raise nearly $55 million to support local programs, services and capital projects for the organizations she has served, including the United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley, Akron Children’s Hospital Mahoning Valley and, most recently, Stambaugh Auditorium and affiliated arts organizations.
