FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FRIDAY, JANUARY 17, 2014
The Chenango Arts Council announces that longtime Executive Director Victoria Calvert Kappel will be leaving the organization at the end of June.
Kappel, who has been Executive Director since 1999 says, “Fifteen years ago my family and I arrived in Chenango County from the Midwest, and were immediately and unreservedly welcomed into the community. Both personally and professionally these years have solidified my love for this county and organization and I will be forever grateful for the opportunity. It is now time for me to explore new challenges and adventures and cheer on a new champion of the Arts Council.”
President of the Board of Directors for the Chenango Arts Council Lisa Natoli said, "Victoria has made significant contributions to the growth and viability of the Arts Council throughout her tenure. We are grateful for all she’s done to further the mission of the Arts Council in helping Chenango County’s residents discover the art in everyday life. She leaves a lasting legacy, and difficult shoes to fill. We wish Victoria every happiness as she chooses her future path."
A selection committee has been formed to conduct a national search for the next executive director. View the following link for applicant information:
