Executive Director Mary Cummings Leaves Tapestry
Mary Cummings announced her resignation in October of 2016. She will be remaining in her position until February, 2017, providing ample time for the Board of Directors to find a replacement. A search will be announced shortly.
In her resignation letter, Mary wrote: “It has been five years since I became your executive director. I’m reminded of something said by a dancer who recommended me for the position when I first came to Tapestry: “Mary – They’re a passionate and quirky bunch. Enjoy them.” She was right, of course. You are a quirky bunch. That’s part of what’s fun and engaging about you. And you have such passion for dance and incredible dedication as volunteers and donors. I’ve found you to be inspiring and admirable. As for enjoying you – that I have!
Sometimes an ED decides to head out the door when there is some toxic situation or the place is on the brink of insolvency. That’s not the case here. Tapestry is in pretty good shape now, which bodes well for the transition.”
