Happy New Year and thank you for your good wishes as I step into the role of Executive Director. Over the past ten years, GBCA has created a rich dialogue in the cultural community and laid the necessary groundwork to strengthen this vital and economically powerful sector. I am honored to work with GBCA’s skilled Board of Directors to connect artists and groups to one another; broker relationships inside and outside the arts and culture sector; lead in addressing strategic issues facing the cultural community; and advocate for the continued visibility and financial strength of the sector.
I am grateful for Nancy Haragan’s vision as the Founding Director and to Buck Jabaily for his many accomplishments at the helm of GBCA over the past two years. Please join me in wishing him great success with the new Baltimore Open Theatre. We look forward to seeing the fruit of his partnership with Phillip Arnoult.
Here’s to the exciting work that lies ahead in 2012,
