With elation I introduce to you all our two newest Leadership Team Members, Leah Greenberg and Carl Schmitz!! They both reached out after our call for leadership member applications this summer and bring new perspectives into the mix.

Leah is the Youth Programs Manager at the Contemporary Jewish Museum (and has two lovely high-energy boys) and Carl is the Visual Resources & Art Research Librarian, at the Richard Diebenkorn Foundation (and tends to carry a pen/pencil over his ear, always ready to take notes). 

As we are conducting research (thank you all who responded to the survey) and analysis around our leadership structure and processes through our organization assessment, their fresh minds on the work is so valued! Please join me in welcoming them to the team!

Enthusiastically Yours, 
Katherin Canton, EAP SF/BA Network Coordinator
