In June, we kicked off a new Parent Talk year by saying goodbye to our outgoing Board members and welcoming a new group of Board members to lead our organization. This energetic group is already hard at work planning fun events for kids, interesting lectures for parents, community events and fundraisers. We can’t wait to share them all with you this year.
The Parent Talk Board of Directors for 2015/2016 includes the following new members:
Joanna Cram – Clerk
Meredith Swisher – Playspace Chair
Leslie Arnould – Fundraising Co-Chair
Michelle Freniere – Fundraising Co-Chair
Elizabeth VanDahm – Membership Co-Chair
Joanna Noon – Membership Co-Chair
Meredith Giannotti – Events Co-Chair
Liza d’Hemecourt – Community Relations Chair
Diana Han Wilson – Lecture Chair
Bonnie McLellan – Volunteer Co-Chair
Jennifer Emmett – Marketing Chair
These 11 new board members join the following five returning Board members:
Megan Bourque – President
Ellie Beasley – Vice President
Nar Lee – Treasurer
Kate Swenson – Events Co-Chair
Michael Cohen – Volunteer Co-Chair
The Board of Directors is rounded out by our new Executive Director, Susan Kagan, and our Business Administrator, Mary Schneider.
The current Board is grateful for the hard work of the outgoing Board members. Many thanks to Wendy Todd, Emily Roach, Lauren Baum, Shalini Broderick, Kristen Capodilupo, Colleen Doran, Deborah Dorman, Riley Hastings, Susan Koslow, and Maggie Shapiro for making the transition so seamless.
