HAIL AND FAREWELL, DEPARTING AAFF BOARD MEMBERS
The Ann Arbor Film Festival sincerely thanks our retiring board members Bruce Baker and Wendy Lawson for their years of service as they conclude their participation on the AAFF Board of Directors.
Bruce, CEO of Radius Garden Tools, chaired the AAFF board from 2008 - 2014. He worked tirelessly to share the best in avant-garde film with the Ann Arbor community and beyond. Having sustained the board and organization through several executive directors (including a year without one), the Festival has made great strides as a result of his steady and strong leadership. Bruce had served on the board for two other periods during the 1990s and 2000s.
Wendy, currently Vice President of Advancement for Planned Parenthood of Mid and South Michigan, played a crucial role in our organization’s evolution. She generously contributed her expertise in major gift work and board development. As chair of both the development and nominating committees, she powered the board’s fundraising capacity with great optimism and charisma.
Both Wendy and Bruce remain committed to the Festival through continued service on the Development and Screening committees, respectively.
We wish them both the best in their post-festival board endeavors!
