Welcome to The ABWA Oceanside Charter Chapter

Ms. Belinda Stewart, Featured Speaker

When Belinda Stewart found herself facing a career change after the age of 50, she knew it was up to her to decide whether the process would be excruciating or exciting. Belinda chose the latter and will share five insights she learned on her journey of almost 30 years in for-profit journalism to a new life in non-profit communications.

Belinda, a graduate of the University of Iowa, worked at newspapers in Iowa and Illinois, including short stints in Wisconsin and Washington, D.C. before moving to Brevard County ten years ago to work as an editor at Florida Today. During the past two years, she has served as communications manager for 2-1-1 Brevard Inc., which operates a 24-hour helpline-hotline.

2-1-1 Brevard Inc. is a private, not-for-profit organization serving Brevard County, Florida for more than 40 years.  The organization operates a telephone-based helpline offering crisis intervention and information and referral services, 24 hours a day.  By dialing 2-1-1, help is just a phone call away. Trained specialists provide information and assistance in times of emotional, financial and community crisis. 

Please join us on Tuesday, November 25 to hear Belinda’s insightful presentation!
