In January, ECO welcomed two new members to our Board of Directors: Alexis Boytim and Veni Mittal. While new to our board, these are not new faces to the Etna EcoDistrict community. Our former Executive Director, Alexis, was gracious enough to join our board after moving on from her position. She brings with her a tremendous amount of institutional knowledge that is invaluable to our organization. Alexis will serve as ECO's Treasurer and will continue to be active in our projects and programming. We are also so fortunate to have Veni Mittal as a new board member. Veni is passionate about the sustainability movement and has been active in the Etna EcoDistrict since the launch of the 2018 Education Series. Veni will serve as the Chair of the Food Champions committee to focus on addressing food issues in our community.
Board elections also took place with the following positions filled:
Robert Tuñón, Board Chair
Mary Ellen Ramage, Vice Board Chair
Alexis Boytim, Treasurer
Jessica Kirin, Secretary
Kendra Clarke, Committee Chair, ECC Property Task Force
Veni Mittal, Committee Chair, Food Champions
Megan Tuñón, Executive Director, ex officio board member
