    Congrats and welcome, Tiffany! ❤️ Appreciate very much that you’re here.

    Wonderful that Tiffany has roots in the NoCo – while noting that I don’t think that was the root of what may have caused the former director to move on. Agree that the short term rental situation is gnarly. The intersection of this issue with improving DEI is an interesting topic – hope ADI tackles it.

    Thanks to the Adirondack Diversity Initiative search team for their diligence in finding the new director, and best wishes to Tiffany Rea-Fisher as she begins her leadership role at ADI.

    Wouldn’t this be a good time for ALL of us who care about the Adirondack region to open our hearts and minds to fresh perspectives, new ideas, and concerns coming from our younger, more diverse population? Isn’t this what ADI, ANCA and the rest of our forward looking organizations should be about?

    Let’s encourage the talents and creative energies of our next generation, and support efforts to merge the full range of art and music together with nature and athletics in order to build the vibrant and successful Adirondack communities of the future.
