This message posted on behalf of Brad Greeley, President.
I am sorry to let you know that our Executive Director, Amy Lockwood, has resigned her position as of August 3rd for personal reasons. We are saddened at her leaving but the Board was pleased to accept her offer of continuing to consult with us during the transition to new leadership. Dave Boynton has agreed to become acting Executive Director while we search for an Interim ED.
The Island Staff have been informed and are saddened by the news but are committed to making the rest of the season an excellent experience for conferees.
The Board is strong in its praise for the work Amy has done for us and admiring of how she lead us through the last month to where we were able to open and welcome conferees.
This press release was sent to the media late yesterday afternoon.
We hope you will share your appreciation of the hard work Amy has done on our behalf and join with us as we move towards a sounder and safer Island home.
In the spirit,
Brad Greeley, Pres,
SIC Board of Directors
