Local League(s): 

Christina Dragonetti is a Director of the League of Women Voters of California. She is a native of the San Francisco Bay Area currently living in El Cerrito and working for the California Association of Nonprofits (CalNonprofits), based in San Francisco. She is a member of the San Francisco League and has served on the California Voter Service Committee for the past year.  

Christina looks forward to using her skills in marketing, membership acquisition, fundraising, event management, and training to serve the League. Her professional goals include supporting advocacy organizations, improving nonprofit infrastructure, and combating the "do more with less" environment in which nonprofits too often operate. She believes in evidence-based decision-making, and she enjoyed learning about the League’s relationship with the public by analyzing the web traffic on CAVotes.org for the Voter Service Committee.

Christina graduated from Whitman College with a BA in Politics. After spending five years living and working in the Seattle area—most of that time for the Berlitz Language Company—Christina entered graduate school in 2006 and earned her Masters of Nonprofit Management in International Development from the Monterey Institute of International Studies.

Once again displaying a talent for picking beautiful places to live, Christina moved to Marin County, where she spent five years working for the Center for Volunteer and Nonprofit Leadership of Marin. As program associate, Christina implemented and managed capacity-building programs including training and conferences. Christina then worked for TechSoup Global as Executive Assistant to the CEO before becoming the Membership and Communications Manager for CalNonprofits in 2013.

In 2008, Christina participated in the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk for the Cure, raising almost $2,500 and walking nearly 60 miles. Over the years she has volunteered with the League of Women Voters of California, Bridge the Gap Tutoring, the Mill Valley Public Library, Habitat for Humanity, and Co-Op Camp Sierra.

Christina’s favorite activities include reading (mysteries and historical fiction) and international travel. Her pet peeves include people who complain about government but do nothing to effect change, and bad grammar on public signs.
