In my work, I interact with quite a few non-profit organizations in Fremont and the greater SF Bay Area, so see quite a lot of "behind-the-scenes" activity. It is a pleasure partnering with the LEC team in their marketing efforts -- the Executive Director, staff, and Board are all committed to serving our community in the best way possible. Their professionalism, enthusiasm, attention to detail, and communication skills all go a long way toward making the organization as efficient as possible, with the greatest focus on delivering much-needed services, to those who benefit most from them. In comparison to other organizations, I really feel this is one of the best in our community, with a long-standing track record of commitment to excellence and true service of value.
