McKinney V Parrish (she/her/they)

Director of Communications

McKinney joined the ICC team as the Director of Member Services in 2014. After seven fun-filled “seasons” of figuring out 75 years of history and what exactly a “member service” was, they’ve transitioned to a new role. McKinney is ready and willing to tackle a massive barrier the organization faces. . . COMMUNICATION. Since the pandemic took priority over operations, McKinney will hit the ground running this Spring/Summer 2021 as the newly minted Director of Communications. McKinney is primarily responsible for Communication Strategy and Knowledge Management Support. They hope to achieve organizational goals by working cooperatively with the Communications Coordinator and Vice President of Marketing and Recruitment. McKinney hopes to dismantle the silos of central operations and remind members that they are in fact empowered to lead one of the oldest and somewhat largest student housing co-ops in the country. A big believer in the Leadership Challenge, McKinney continues to tackle the turnover and constant transitions by….

  1. Modeling the way
  2. Inspiring a shared vision
  3. Challenging the process
  4. Enabling others to act
  5. Encouraging the heart

All. . . at the speed of cooperation!
