Board changes: new leadership

In January, the board of directors voted in a slate of officers for the coming year, and acknowledged some members stepping down. L Nichols has rotated off the board for personal reasons, after serving as Treasurer and assisting with publications and fundraising.

In addition, chair Emily Hague stepped down and passed the torch to one of our newest board members, Dave Carre. The board thanked Emily for her 4 years as chair, and acknowledged her leadership through the transition from a staff-led organization to a fully volunteer crew with shared leadership roles. Emily plans to remain as communications coordinator, and spend more time on the trail as a crew member.

The board welcomed Dave Carre as incoming chair, noting his demonstrated enthusiasm for fundraising and engagement. In Dave's words: “I save up my carbon credits so I can long-haul it from Pennsylvania to help create beautiful, durable, foot-friendly works of stone. I really want to keep the fire burning brightly for everyone on the Crew.”

The reason Dave has stepped into this role has a lot to do with wanting all once-and-forever Jolly Rovers drawn back to the trail or to the fireside, joining in the fun! Dave pitches in to manage the website too, and is looking forward to helping the crew refine its transition planning for the Board and the dedicated corps of Jolly Rover Coordinators.
