The Kiwanis Club of Vulcan is excited to welcome Ms. Carmen Mays as our guest speaker Tuesday July 13th, 2021.

Coupled with a powerful instinct to discern systemic gaps that too often hinder communities, Carmen has vision. She actively seeks out opportunities to expand equity within underinvested legacy neighborhoods and forges ahead with solutions. Carmen has developed blueprints that have been successfully leveraged by community leaders and partners to bridge equitability gaps and promote economic empowerment and transportation access. She brings this intuitive approach and ardency for action to all of her work, including her first foray into entrepreneurship as the founder of ​Elevators​.
She has over a decade of public sector experience engaged with community and economic development with many years in local government. Most recently she served as the Neighborhood Revitalization and Public Safety Administrator for the mayoral transition team for Mayor Randall Woodfin and the City of Birmingham. Carmen also re-launched the Minority Business Development program for the City of Spartanburg in South Carolina, earning Federal Transit Administration approval for the City’s Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program. She has also worked as the Outreach Specialist for Perimeter Transportation and Sustainability Coalition—now known as Perimeter Connects—leading partnership engagement efforts for the organization and working with over 30 companies to establish commuter benefits programs.
Carmen earned a Bachelor of Arts in Foreign Language, with an emphasis in Spanish, and International Trade from the University of Alabama in Huntsville. She continued her education at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, gaining a Master of Public Administration with concentrations in Public Management and Planning & Non-Profit Management.
Carmen was selected to the 2015 Upstate Class of the Diversity Leadership Institute at Furman University’s Riley Institute and ICMA’s Emerging Leaders Development Program. She also attended Habitat III, the United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development in Quito, Ecuador.
To maintain balance, Carmen enjoys the arts, outdoors, and southern rap music. While she has received many awards and recognitions, Carmen's most prized accolade is "Bestest Auntie in the World."
