Transition Announcement

I have decided that the time has come to resign from my post as the director of the Island Institute. Interim Director Aurora Lang will take the helm for the next several months.

The time has come whatever's next - for now, that means staying in Sitka / Southeast Alaska, working on some personal & creative projects!  The change feels exciting.
