Please join us in offering a warm welcome to Barbara Green, COLAGE's new Interim Executive Director as she begins in her new role with us on Monday! COLAGE is excited to add Barbara Green to our staff and honored to have her serve us in the essential leadership role.
In addition to 16 years of experience serving as interim executive director at a wide variety of non profit organizations, Barbara also brings her connections with leaders of LGBT organizations around the country, strategic planning expertise and a deep understanding of organization development. Barbara is excited to start her position with COLAGE, "As a lesbian mother of a teenage son, I am passionate about empowering youth and helping further the COLAGE mission." She will be in the San Francisco office March 12-14 and will then work from her home in Seattle. If you are in the Bay Area, Barbara would love to meet with you while she's in town.
Barbara joins Elizabeth Castellana, COLAGE's National Program Director and Noah Chasnoff, our Development Associate in an exciting and important time for COLAGE. COLAGE is embarking on a new strategic plan process, preparing for our return to Provincetown Family Week, and launching new leadership programs for youth, adult participants and volunteers. Your support of Barbara in her new role and your support of COLAGE through your participation and donations will ensure the success of these initiatives.
Once again, thank you for your support during this time of excitement and change. We are eager to engage with you through programs and planning this year and encourage you to reach out to welcome Barbara and share your ideas and visions with her.
