President's Letter

Hello Also-Known-As Community!

To those who I have met before and those who I look forward to meeting soon, my name is Lindsay Geier (aka 涂婷) (she/her). I am honored to step into this upcoming year as President and carry on the legacy of those who have been in this position and on the Board before me.

This beloved organization has a rich history of 26+ years and I can speak for the Board as I share our excitement and commitment to continue to build, empower and transform with each of you! Following our annual Board of Directors retreat we honed in on members' feedback to identify key priorities for the upcoming year to ensure we're maximizing ways to partner and deliver impactful programming for the community. Our community's strength comes from being with one another. Community success would not be possible without those who built the foundation before us, those showing up and building with us, and those who will come after us.

We look forward to all that is to come in this upcoming season’s journey!

[Front Left to Right] Lindsay (President), Katie O'Donnell, Andrew McFarland, Emily Flynn, Mark Fermi (Treasurer), Sara Crayne-Dedrick (Vice President), Katie Mantele, and Joseph Pinney (Secretary).
