Leaders in Plano: Beccy Alldredge
Kim Williams / Staff Photo - Beccy Alldredge, president-elect for the Junior League of Plano, is committed to the city and is also looking to the future by growing the organization in Collin County.
Leadership Plano is a community leadership development program founded by the Plano Chamber of Commerce, but membership with the chamber is not required to be part of the leadership class.
Beccy Alldredge is just one of 34 members of this year’s group who truly impact the community. Alldredge is the president-elect for the Junior League of Plano and believes Leadership Plano will help her grow as a leader.
“As a service organization, we are always looking for areas in our community that are underserved and where we can make an impact,” Alldredge said. “I am hopeful that Leadership Plano will help to identify needs in our community that the Junior League of Plano can get involved in.”
The league is an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.
She has been married to Jason Alldredge for 15 years and has two children, Garrett, 13, a seventh-grader at Rice Middle School, and Kaitlyn, 10, a fifth-grader at Skaggs Elementary.
Alldredge said her only focus over the next two years besides her family is the Junior League of Plano.
“My goals are in identifying ways to improve our organization’s reach throughout Collin County and improving membership satisfaction throughout our organization,” Alldredge said. “The Junior League of Plano has a rich history of improving lives in our community. We have projects that serve the entire county with agencies headquartered in Plano, Frisco and McKinney.”
Alldredge explained that more than half of the league’s active membership resides outside of Plano in other Collin County cities.
“As a result of the amazing women that came before us, we have grown beyond Plano and now serve agencies and attract members from all over Collin County,” Alldredge said. “We remain committed to Plano and honoring the legacy of our organization in this city as well as looking to our future and growing in Collin County.”
By being part of Leadership Plano, Alldredge hopes to gain insight into how the city operates and the history of Plano.
“I also am looking to make connections and network with others in our community and to learn new leadership skills,” Alldredge says. “My experience so far has been very positive and although I have only attended the opening retreat, I can see that I will be able to gain the things I am hoping to this year by being a member of Class 28.”
Buzz Kolbe, leadership development coach and executive director of Leadership Plano, says he is blessed to have Alldredge as a member of Leadership Plano Class 28.
“During our opening retreat, Beccy demonstrated a passionate commitment to her participation with Leadership Plano, and she is a great resource and role model for the other members of the class,” Kolbe said. “I am confident she will provide the leadership required in her current role as president-elect for the Junior League of Plano and the following year as president for this outstanding service organization.”
