Guild's Program Team Grows

March 20, 2020


Effective in January 2020, the program team was restructured in response to our current scope of work and capacities, and vision for deepening and expanding key initiatives. In collaboration with the Guild’s Chief Program Officer Heather Ikemire, the Guild's programs and services are led by:

  • ASHLEY HARE was hired in March as Director of Leadership Development. Ashley will direct the Guild’s Leadership Institutes and Alumni Networks, including CAELI and the CAELI Alumni Network, the National Young Artists Summit and Youth Network, and Catalyzing Creative Aging. They also will direct work to build and strengthen local and regional capacity building networks.
  • IVY YOUNG joined the Guild’s team in August 2019 as Assistant Director of Learning and, effective January 1, has been promoted to Director of Conferences and Learning. She will direct the work of the national conference, our member networks, and online learning.
  • LISSETTE MARTINEZ, formerly our program coordinator, is now our Network and Learning Coordinator. She will primarily coordinate member network and regional chapter activities, online learning and resource center development, and the conference.
