Luke Fowler, President of the Fishers Island Community Center’s Board, is pleased to announce several changes in the management of the Center.
Sarah Porter, a long-time member of the Community Center staff since it started 10 years ago, has been named Director of Operations responsible for membership, programming, and the facility maintenance. Since the opening of the Center, Sarah has been responsible for the membership program, assisted with successful Annual Fund campaigns and has overseen many aspects of the Center’s day-to-day operations. During the last four months, Sarah has been indispensable in seamlessly managing our programs, the facility, bookkeeping and overall outreach efforts all while keeping our membership program strong. The Board of the Community Center deeply appreciates Sarah’s hard work and is pleased she to taking on an expanded role going forward.
Additionally, we are pleased Kathleen Neiman has agreed to join the Community Center as Manager of Finance and Administration. Kathleen spent many years in Toronto where she worked for Crawford & Co., the multi-national insurance adjuster. There she held a number of administrative positions involving multi-office coordination, event management, and financial controls. She also has considerable experience with hospitality management and non-profit fundraising. A new year-round resident, Kathleen is married to Ed Neiman, the new Executive Chef at the Big Club.
Also, this is to advise that Liz Burnham resigned her position as Executive Director to devote full time to taking care of her growing family. We thank Liz for her service and wish her all the best.
