Happy New Year to our beloved community! We have two updates to share with you.
Welcome to Our New Board Members: Danielle, Sarah, and Dale
For the last two months, we have been in the process of recruiting new members to join our all-volunteer Board of Directors. Adrian, Harry, Ryan, and Amelia composed our recruitment committee and interviewed several qualified candidates in December 2018.
We are thrilled to welcome three new members to our Board starting in 2019: Danielle Parks, Sarah Honeycutt, and Dale Lucht. All three will serve at minimum one 3-year term, lasting from January 2019 through December 2021.
Sarah, Dale, and Danielle are excited to get started and get to know more local Burners in their new role - click here to read their bios! You can also meet them, as well as our other board members (Ryan, Ariel, Harry, and Adrian) at our upcoming Precipitation Northwest General Meeting on Sunday, January 20th or at Burning Man Portland Town Hall on Saturday, February 19th.
Retiring Board Members: Amelia & Becca
At the end of every board member’s initial 3-year term, each member can choose whether they want to continue to volunteer and serve on the board or if they are ready to retire.
After serving productive 3-year terms, both Becca and Amelia have both chosen to retire as of December 2018. Amelia served as Precipitation Northwest's inaugural board President in 2016 and 2017, and served on the Development and Finance Committees. Becca was our Board President in 2018 and participated in the Programs Committee, and also served as the Board's event liaison to our volunteer Producers for both SOAK and BurnOut. We will miss both Becca and Amelia, and are grateful for their dedicated contributions over the years!
