Posted by on September 9 at 9:39 AM

This just in from the Vera Project:

“The Vera Project is thrilled to announce our new Executive Director - Shannon Roach. Shannon comes to the Vera Project with years of experience working in the youth/music field in the Seattle area. Most recently, she has been the Program Coordinator of the Old Fire House in Redmond, the longest running all-ages venue in the Pacific Northwest.

In March, Vera’s founding Executive Director James Keblas resigned when he was appointed to be the Director of the Seattle Film and Music Office. Kate Becker, founding Artistic Director of the Vera Project, has been the Interim Director for the past six months. Co-founder Shannon Stewart is Vera’s Program Director. The Vera Project is very excited to have Shannon Roach on board as our new Executive Director. Shannon’s first day will be September 19, 2005.”
