How does a busy CEO, speaker, husband and father find time to serve on the Advisory Board for The Salvation Army? “I’m one of those guys who says, you find time to do what is important to you. What TSA does is important to our community,” CJ McClanahan. A recent guest on our Red Shield Radio, CJ shared with listeners that he made a decision to get involved with The Salvation Army because it’s an organization whose mission he feels passionately about.

CJ brings that passion along with a host of other leadership qualities to The Salvation Army as a new member of the Advisory Board, installed in November of 2010. As the founder of Reachmore, a leadership training and management consulting firm, CJ says, “The only way to lead a life where you are at peace; to truly live an extraordinary life, you must give back.” And giving back is just what CJ plans to do when his new book “Thrive” launches next month. He’ll be donating $5 for every online purchase of his book to The Salvation Army. Simply visit and insert “SA” into the second address field to indicate The Salvation Army as a recipient of that gift.

We’re excited to welcome CJ McClanahan to the Advisory Board and our team here at The Salvation Army! We’re also looking forward to having him as our guest speaker at the Victory Dinner on March 31st.  If you or your business would like to have CJ as a speaker or take advantage of Reachmore’s classes, training, or coaching please visit
