And, a few goodbyes

As we welcome two new members to the team, we are also saying goodbye to two team members this month.

  • After 21 years of service, Patrice Snowden, Governance Program Specialist, retired on January 7. 
  • Celeste Keeton's last day with the Alliance is Friday, January 21. She was offered an amazing opportunity she couldn't refuse. While we are sad to see this incredibly talented communications specialist go, we are so excited for her to take this next step in her career.
