As of mid May, the Deep Roots Initiative is under way! We have hired a great team and look forward to working with them all in making this project a success.
The new project staff :
- Senior Producer - Greg Osoba
- Communications & Marketing Manager - Carla Voyageur-Dawson
- Fundraising and Volunteer Coordinator - Kathryn Juricic
- Trainer - Rob Selmanovic
In addition, a few of our regulars have taken on some extra duties to make this project run smoothly, including:
- Coordinator - Howie Roman
- Technical Manager - Sean Cowell
Soon there will also be several story producers trained and assigned to shows. They will be working with staff on a per-story basis.
The Steering Committee, involving a number of representatives of island organizations have been a great driving force for this project. The wonderful people involved thus far:
- Kate Maddigan
- David Rousseau
- Max Thaysen
- Sheryl Thompson
- Odette Auger
- Jacqueline Mathieu
- Shannon Jonassen
