Thank you for your dedication, David Hammond!
EPIC is thankful to our Chairman of the Board, David Hammond, as his tenure serving as EPIC’s board chair comes to an end this month. David has been board chair since 2019 and has been critical to the organization’s growth and development since that time. David will continue to remain engaged in EPIC and will now have more time to enjoy Colorado as an outdoor enthusiast and cyclist. EPIC will announce David’s successor in our January newsletter.
Thank you for your service and impact, Susan Steele!
We are incredibly happy for EPIC Board Member, Susan Steele as she enters retirement. Susan has a 30-year history with the Buell Foundation and is a founding EPIC board member. Susan’s leadership, passion, and knowledge have been instrumental in creating strong support for children and families in Colorado. We are excited to have her continued voice and advocacy for children as an EPIC member moving forward, and we wish her many great adventures in her retirement.
Thank you, Susan and David, for your service and incredible contributions to EPIC and for being early childhood advocates and leaders throughout Colorado.
