Laurie Macfee to Lead Poetry and the Senses at ARC

We are pleased to announce that Laurie Macfee has accepted a fantastic position at the Arts Research Center, where she will be overseeing an impressive new grant on “Poetry and the Senses.” Laurie has been an invaluable member of BCNM over the last year and a half and while we will miss her positivity and professionalism greatly, we are also very happy and excited for her to be selected to head up this wonderful new ARC project!

Laurie joined us in July of 2018, bringing all of her past knowledge as a non-profit arts administrator to BCNM and ARC, where she shared a split appointment. She quickly familiarized herself with the often labyrinthine workings of campus and dove enthusiastically into event preparation. Her meticulous planning has ensured that BCNM events and meetings have been executed impeccably. Our student assistants, who worked closely with Laurie, have already shared how much they will miss her support and guidance.

Laurie’s last day at BCNM will be November 15th. We look forward to continuing to work with Laurie in her new capacity and wish her all the best in her new role.

With Laurie’s imminent departure, we will be advertising for a new Events Coordinator immediately. This position will be a career appointment at 50% time in BCNM. You can find the advertisement here and online here. We greatly appreciate your help as we search for a suitable candidate to fill Laurie’s impressive shoes!
