Women & Politics – Board Change Notice – June 2020
Today, we announce the departure of Board Chair, Marci Allen-Easton, who has been in the role for the past year, and previously served two years as Vice-Chair. Marci has been with the board since January 2015, where she has worked tirelessly to amplify women’s voices, and in particular, support women running in elections by arranging literature drops, leading workshops at campaign schools, and other support. During her term as Chair, she drove the work to finalize the incorporation of Women & Politics as a non-profit organization, after two years of groundwork by both past and present members of the board. While the Board is sad to see Marci go, we are incredibly grateful for her dedication and tireless work ethic in support of the Board’s work. We know she will go on to do more incredible work in our community, and we wish her the best of luck. We will miss you!
Women & Politics is pleased to announce, effective June 1, 2020, that Sarah Emms-Pilon will take on the role of Acting Board Chair. Sarah has been with Women & Politics for five years, and served as Vice-Chair for the past year. Sarah has taken the lead on many of our communications platforms and projects throughout her time on the board, and is especially passionate about finding new ways to amplify women’s voices and support women running in elections or doing advocacy work. The Board would like to congratulate Sarah and looks forward to working with her in her new role as Acting Board Chair.
