Just read this on Dennis Stevens blog after I got an email alert from Natasha Wozniak.
Carmine Branagan has resigned as Executive Director of the American Craft Council effective Friday, November 9th. Carmine served the Council with passion and dedication since 2002. Under her leadership the Council re-launched American Craft magazine, presented a national leadership conference in Houston, TX, revitalized the Council’s show program, and developed a strong, committed staff. Carmine believes many of the goals set during her directorship have been achieved and she looks forward to pursuing other interests.
We are grateful for her vision for the Council and for the critical role she has played to help secure the future of the field.
It will be very interesting to see how thing unfold there.
