Head of the Vermont Arts Council Alex Aldrich has announced that he will resign, after more than twenty years in the position. He will officially step down on April 14. Teri Bordenave will serve as interim executive director and will assist the board of trustees with a national search for a replacement.
“Working to preserve and advance the arts in Vermont for the past two decades has been exhilarating—challenging at times—and ultimately, deeply fulfilling. At this point in my career, however, my focus needs to be on my family’s real estate business, and I look forward to the new opportunities this transition will bring,” Aldrich said in a statement.
The Vermont Arts Council is the nation’s only nonprofit state arts agency. Established in 1965, the council has been the state's primary provider of funding, advocacy, and information for the arts.
