THANKS TO OUR DIRECTORS WHO ARE STEPPING DOWN.

EGAD has been extremely fortunate to have had JACIE STIVERS, CARL KAISERMAN and STEVE LUM on our board. When you meet Carl, you learn quickly that he is a retired architect from Brooklyn. Carl’s contributions to the Board have been invaluable. His tireless efforts on the big green community kiosks are his lasting legacy to EGAD, but he was a major player in the public arts program, too, and secured private funding and donations for the murals. Steve is the president of Slug-a-Bug who has supported EGAD in so many ways,¬†including last December First Friday’s human snow globe. His gentle wisdom will be missed. ¬†Professionally, Jacie is an expert commercial real estate broker with deep ties and investment in the community who has made undeniable contributions to EGAD’s success. Personally, she is an incredibly positive person and we consider ourselves very lucky to have her good counsel.

EGAD has benefitted tremendously by these outstanding people and we are proud to have had them as members of our Board.
