Michael Smith Joins Board of American Cancer Society

SPRINGFIELD, MO: // Missouri native, Michael Smith was recently appointed to the board of the Southwest Missouri branch of the American Cancer Society. Smith is the COO and Managing Partner of Next Level Solutions, a technology company headquartered in Springfield, Missouri. Next Level Solutions has been partnering with the American Cancer Society for the past three years, participating in the Real Men Wear Pink initiative and raising money as a company.

“Joining the board for this organization is special for me,” said Smith. “I lost my mother to breast cancer, and anything I can do that contributes to finding a cure or supporting people dealing with this disease is really important.” Smith was nominated to the local branch by one of his peers. After that, there was an interview process, a formal application, and a vote by the current board members.

With Smith on the board, Next Level Solutions will be involved in even more fundraising in 2022, and he’ll be joining several event committees. “Now that we have an expanding workforce and employees in place to help with large-scale events, we’re going to push hard for increased participation, Smith said. “I’m excited to see what our generous team can deliver.”

“NLS encourages a culture of collaborative working and learning, meaning that regardless of job title or position, everyone is willing to help one another. A big focus at NLS is work/life balance, I feel that they really try to foster this idea every day. Every company says they have an open-door policy, but at NLS I feel that really rings true. The managers are always accessible with their actual doors open when available. It is truly refreshing to work for a company that treats you like an adult and allows you to have control of your job path. It doesn't matter if you have been here a week or years, everyone at NLS is part of the family. I truly feel that this company everyday tries to live up to its motto: DO GOOD WORK!!”
