Bonnie Barnes
For people trying to enact such positive changes in the world, it can be confusing to see so many legal documents that have to be filed and government regulations that have to be followed. Why is it so hard for good people to do good things? The answer is simple: There are bad people in the world. Without these documents and compliance stipulations in place, it would be far too easy for ill-meaning individuals to take advantage of the kindness of others. Bonnie Barnes,  COO/VP, Business Development with Hands On Jacksonville, will show you how to keep your organization out of trouble by preventing compliance issues before they happen.
Most of Bonnie’s professional life has been entrepreneurial and corporately driven, only transitioning the last ten years into the nonprofit world. She recently helped The Arc Jacksonville convince corporations to consider individuals with disabilities for employment. As Executive Director for North Florida Land Trust for seven years, she grew the nonprofit from 1/2 million to more than $8 million in assets, resulting in over 4,000 acres of land preserved.
Bonnie received her MBA from Jacksonville University. She has been recognized as Jacksonville Chamber‘s 2001 Business Leader of the Year, Leadership Jacksonville 2007,  Regional Leadership Academy 2008, and a 2012 Woman of Influence.


When asked about joining Hands On Jacksonville, Bonnie said, “it’s the perfect next step. Helping others is my life.”
