It is with great pleasure and pride that I am able to announce that the Executive Council has hired the new Executive Director for Poetry Slam, Inc.: Abigail Ehn!
Abigail brings years of PSi experience to the table from behind the scenes. Literally raised on Slam, she has acted as a volunteer at PSi since her teens in capacities including registration, money handling and database management. She brings a wealth of enthusiasm, knowledge and vision to the role. She is only the second person to hold this position since PSi's inception, after the recently departed Steve Marsh.
Steve shoes were big shoes to fill but she's already walking in them admirably. Abigail has been working in the capacity of interim ED for the past few months while we transitioned Steve out of the position and installed new processes and staffing. As PSI's most important day-to-day operative she has already shown herself to be more than equipped for the job. The EC received a few awesome entries, and were honored to have been able to consider them.
Here's to our new Executive Director, a new era in Slam, and the continued resilience and evolution of the Slam family!
