| April 26, 2017 | 6:05 pm | Community News | Comments closed

The Watershed Center Grand Traverse Bay is pleased to welcome two new members to the Board of Directors as well as announce the director of community engagement.

“The first quarter of 2017 was a time to build our capabilities for the future,” said The Watershed Center’s executive director Christine Crissman. “As we think about the future of our region, as well as what the value of clean, healthy water in Grand Traverse Bay means for our community, we wanted to build our bench of board and staff members to meet those needs.”

Joining the Board are Eric Keller, regional coordinator for the Michigan League of Conservation Voters, and Tom Klein, independent strategic marketing consulting. Keller brings his extensive public policy, campaign, and government experience, which will be beneficial as The Watershed Center works with policymakers at various levels of government. Klein’s background in business and marketing will help bolster the nonprofit’s relationships with key audiences.

The Watershed Center also welcomed Shelli DiFranco as the director of community engagement. DiFranco brings over 10 years of communications, public relations, and community engagement experience. DiFranco will be leading communications and marketing and supporting The Watershed Center’s philanthropic efforts.

The Watershed Center will host a public open house at their office at 13272 S. West Bay Shore Drive in Traverse City on Friday, June 2 from 8-10am for the community to meet Keller, Klein, and DiFranco.
