From: Adrienne Hood, Chair, Board of Trustees RE: Shauna’s Departure
As you may have heard by now, our Director, Shauna McCabe will be leaving the Museum on August 1, 2016 to take up her new position as Director of the Art Gallery of Guelph. This is an exciting time for Shauna, but you may be wondering what’s next for the museum? A small group of the Board is working on a procedure and timeline for hiring a new executive director. Before we can begin to formalize the process we need Board approval to go forward,for which I will be calling a Board meeting within the next week. After that I will keep you updated about the steps we are planning to ensure we get the best possible individual to lead us into the future.
Please be aware that all current and upcoming exhibitions and programmes as scheduled for the year will continue as planned as these were all formalized and budgeted for earlier in the year thanks to Shauna and the staff. On behalf of the Board I want to thank you for your commitment to the museum – you are an integral part of its success and will be included in the process. In the meantime, thank you for your patience and support as we work through the transition period.
