Introducing Mel Clark

After a rigorous and energizing search for DiscNW’s next leader, we are thrilled to announce Mel Clark as DiscNW’s new ED!

She is excited to work with staff, volunteers, and board to continue executing our plan to strengthen our community.

We will be in touch soon with details about opportunities to meet and get to know Mel. In the meantime, she'll be working closely with Bunny through the end of June to transition responsibilities. Come say hi to Mel at Bunny's party!
