Interim Executive Director Announced

March 7th 2017

Hello Provender Members,
Your Provender Board is excited to announce Vicki Reich as our new Interim Executive Director. Vicki has been actively involved in the organization for many years as a member with Winter Ridge Natural Foods and the Moscow Food Co-op as well as 8 years as a board member.

Vicki brings with her years of experience in the inner workings of our organization. She served on the board during the transition to Policy Governance and was active in developing the policies and goals that Provender uses to this day. She has been involved in conference planning, Journal writing and technological improvements to the organization. She is excited to continue to bring these fabulous benefits to our membership. Vicki also brings a desire to help the organization become more tech savvy, organized, and professional so Provender can grow and thrive.

It is our goal to hire a permanent Executive Director this year and we will make the posting public once we are ready to start the search.  It is also our goal to maintain the current level of membership benefits you have come to know including the conference and journal.

As we look to the future, we will continue to educate and inspire our community. Your Provender board is working diligently to insure the smoothest transition possible and welcomes any feedback, questions or concerns you may have during this moment of change. We appreciate your continued support.


Much Appreciation,

Your Provender Board
