Crystal Plummer Named Director of Networking

Bishop Lee has named Crystal Plummer as director of networking, a position that serves on his executive team.

Plummer became acting director of networking in February 2017 and since then has guided the diocese’s advocacy and community engagement, communications and fundraising. From 2011-2015, Plummer was associate for development and events consultant for the diocese. She has also been a capital campaign consultant for the Episcopal Church Foundation, project manager for Canticle Communications, and a corporate manager in the insurance and financial services industries.

“Crystal’s excellent organizational skills and strong network of relationships across the diocese make her the ideal person to continue leading our community engagement and advancement work,” Lee said. “I’m especially grateful to Crystal for helping to secure our future by spearheading the mutual benefit campaign, a pilot program to help congregations raise funds for capital improvement while also strengthening the diocese’s endowment.”

Plummer is a trustee of Bishop Anderson House, a deputy to General Convention, and a member of the Episcopal Church’s Joint Standing Committee on Program, Budget and Finance. She and her husband, Bruce, live in Chicago.
