The longtime executive director of Festival du Voyageur is stepping down.
Ginette Lavack Walters will depart September 15 to become the new executive director of Centre culturel franco-manitobain (CCFM).
Lavack Walters has led the annual 10-day winter festival since June 2010.
“My departure is bitter-sweet, for the festival and this organization are very dear to me,” she said in a statement. “But I am relieved that they are in the hands of a strong and dedicated team and a very committed board of directors.”
The board will begin the recruitment process immediately to find Lavack-Walters’ successor. Anyone interested can apply by sending their resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org by 4 p.m. on September 5.
