We are very pleased to announce the creation of an expanded Board of Directors, assembled as part of our on-going process of strategic organizational development enacted with help from a consultant from Catchafire.org.
Thusfar, we have evolved from management by an ad hoc Steering Committee, bringing together seven new, exceptional Board Members, each of whom represents connections to core movements within our network:
- impact investing
- environmental activism
- economic localization and
- good food.
Please welcome all of our new Board Members:
- Claude Arpels
- Scott Budde
- Amy Cortese
- Erica Dorn
- Kerry Gendron
- Jennifer Grossman and
- Jon Zeltsman.
Co-Chairs, Derek Denckla and Brian Kaminer, have remained in their roles leading the organization and members of the Steering Committee, Lindsay Greene and Sam Kressler, have stayed on as Board Members. We are seeking 5 additional Board Members, particularly drawn from Farm and/or Food Entrepreneurs and Academics.
We are excited to introduce you to all the new Board Members at a Meetup to be announced in the near future. Stay tuned!
Until then, please read detailed biographies of existing and new Board Members to familiarize yourself with this excellent group.
