As December approaches, change is in the air. Autumn moves into winter, and 2018 will soon come to an end. Change is afoot at the BC Alliance as well: our director of communications, Nancy Lanthier, is leaving the BC Alliance for new horizons. Her final day in the office is November 30.
Among Nancy’s many invaluable contributions during her time with the BC Alliance: she’s revamped our website’s homepage, including adding several exciting new features; spearheaded a much-needed reorganization of our ArtsVote BC election campaign; organized our Vancouver All Candidates Meeting for Arts and Culture, which saw Vancouver candidates including eventual mayor Kennedy Stewart quizzed on their positions on arts, culture and heritage; and was indispensable in bringing our last two annual conferences to life.
She has also been a source of much joy around the office, from the enthusiasm and talent she has brought to every project she’s tackled, to her excellent home-baked goodies. We’re excited for the many opportunities ahead of her, but sad to see her leave.
About her tenure at the BC Alliance, Nancy says, "It was a privilege and invigorating to work for a solid values-driven, multifaceted organization and with such an extremely talented leader and communications team."
Adds executive director Brenda Leadlay: “Nancy's contributions to the BC Alliance have been instrumental in making the BC Alliance more friendly and accessible to the public. We know that her creative spirit and generosity will bring her success in her future endeavours.”
We at the BC Alliance wish Nancy all the best, and reiterate our deep gratitude for her many accomplishments and hard work on behalf of BC arts, culture and heritage.
