Executive Director Departure

At this time, the American Boer Goat Association is announcing the departure of Executive Director Mary Ellen Gillespie. We want to thank her for her years of service to the association and its members. We would also like to wish her the greatest of success in all her future endeavors.

Mary Ellen’s last day will be Thursday, December 31st. The board is aggressively working to oversee the process of permanently filling the Executive Director position. We are confident that Mary Ellen and the staff will make this a smooth transition for our members, partners and supporters.

If you have any questions about the transition or the organization, do not hesitate to reach out to your Regional Director for assistance. Please see the Executive Director job description and posting announcement here.
