Welcome to our new Acting Executive Director
I’m very pleased to inform you all that longtime Capitolbeat advocate/advisor/ muse/whipcracker Tiffany Shackelford has agreed to become our new Acting Executive Director. I’d ask you to join me in welcoming her, but heck, she’s been around here longer than I have.
Those of you who know her can appreciate how lucky we are. Those that don’t – well, Tiff’s been pulling and pushing us forward since we started in 1999. She was our go-to person at Stateline, where she helped us get funding and speakers for years. Not to mention her help in running conferences, getting grants, and making connections with other non-profit funders.
Tiffany recently left Stateline for the private sector. While I’m honestly sorry for Stateline’s loss, it’s a stroke of luck for us – she can now come on board with us with no conflict.
Tiffany will be working with us through our Strategic Planning board retreat in July. She’ll also be assisting us with grants and conference planning.
Our former Executive Director, Marjorie Goldman, resigned last month to pursue other opportunities. We wish her the best of luck.
Laura Leslie, Capitolbeat President
