The Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture would like to express our concern and support for the victims of the horrific subway shooting in Sunset Park. Our thoughts go out to the victims, their families and friends.
We would like to welcome Erin Carney as the new Managing Director of the Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture. The Recruitment Taskforce conducted an exhaustive campaign and had the pleasure of interviewing several impressive candidates; however, none matched as many of our long list of desired attributes as Erin. She was most recently the founder and chief operating officer of the Brooklyn Creative League, a shared office space serving over 200 members — independent professionals, non-profits, and small-shop creative companies. As a small business owner, Erin was responsible for everything from budgeting to members’ services. Prior to that, she had a distinguished career in the non-profit sector. Erin has a solid background in fiscal management, operations, program development, and implementation, staff management, strategic planning, relationship building, and fundraising. Please join us virtually at the April 17th colloquy, “Rebirth” for an introduction to Erin and on May 16 th , in-person, for a luncheon and celebration after the “All-Society Platform.”
The Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture is committed to peace and human rights.
