Dear Common Ground Community,
Season’s Greetings to you and your family! I hope this letter finds you warm and well.
Since 1999 at 8 years old, I have been attending Camp Common Ground. For most of my life that I can remember, the Common Ground community has felt like an extended part of my family – and it has been there for me as I grew up. Today marks a special day in the life of Common Ground Center; a day where we are all witness to moment of growth in the life on CGC. As chair of the board I am very happy and proud to announce the appointment of Connor Timmons as the new Executive Director of Common Ground Center.
As many of you know, Peg Kamens and Jim Mendell founded Camp Common Ground in 1994, and they have served in the primary leadership roles for over 20 years. CGC would not exist without their devotion to creating, developing, and growing this organization that we all love. In the past few years, the board has supported Jim & Peg in their goal of identifying new leadership to ensure CGC’s continued sustainability and growth without their constant attention and time, the culmination of which is Connor’s appointment. Going forward, Peg will play an advisory role and Jim will continue to cultivate relationships on CGC’s behalf (and of course, be our in-house photography expert!).
Connor began working at CGC in 2011 and has done nothing but impress myself and many others within the community. His dedication to our organization and faith in our mission to strengthen diverse families and communities makes him the perfect choice to take on this role. Please join me in congratulating Connor and thanking him for all the work and passion he has already given.
Although the responsibility of the Executive Director role is considerable, I have complete confidence in Connor’s capability and I know that our board and our community will support him where ever and whenever it is needed.
Thank you for reading, and I hope to see next summer!
Chair of the Board
Common Ground Center
