Agency Spotlight: Metrocrest Services!

We are excited to extend our heartfelt congratulations to Metrocrest Services for the successful completion of their campaign and the construction of their new facility. Although the team transitioned to their new location a few months ago, Metrocrest staff and supporters recently commemorated this achievement with a grand opening event held on August 17th.

During the inaugural year of NES, Tracy Eubanks, the CEO of Metrocrest Services, played a pivotal role in facilitating a webinar designed to empower partners interested in becoming more effective advocates. Over the past five years, Tracy has diligently nurtured these connections with local, state, and federal officials, transforming these relationships into valuable funding opportunities.

If you're interested in learning more about Metrocrest's advocacy strategies and how you can participate or become an advocate for your community, recordings of our Advocacy webinars are available on Agency University.
