Please join us in congratulating and celebrating Director Wendy Siporen. Wendy has announced that she will be transitioning from her role as the Director of Thrive to a new career.
Wendy has served with dedication as Thrive's Executive Director since 2001. She launched the Rogue Flavor local food guide in 2005, and the Rogue Valley Grown label in 2014 as well as leading the creation of the Rogue Valley Food System Network. She has been a dedicated worker and visionary in the local food movement in the Rogue Valley and the state.
Wendy will provide leadership and guidance in the search for her successor, and will work with the Thrive board and staff through the transition. "After 15 years of learning about and celebrating the local food economy, I remain convinced that the local economy movement is key to a sustainable future," said Wendy. "I'm excited to see where that future takes Thrive under the leadership and creativity of a new director."
Please stay tuned as we announce next steps for Thrive and an opportunity to congratulate Wendy.
