New Year | New Transitions

January 2021 News

The new year brings new opportunity, and we are excited to announce a series of board and staff transitions in 2021.

Our slate of board officers will evolve, as Sue Christoph begins her tenure as Chair. Brad Bloom will replace Sue as Vice-Chair, and Judge Mark Lopez will assume the role of Board Secretary, with Rick Shanley continuing as Treasurer and Greg DiDomenico as President/CEO. Together, these individuals represent more than 30 years of collective service to the organization and the communities we serve, and CMF is grateful for their continued partnership.

Beth Murin will transition into a new role as Program and Communications Officer. She continues to manage communications and co-facilitate the YC2 youth philanthropy program, and will add proposal review and grants management in her new role. 

The Foundation also plans to add a part-time Office Assistant to the team in 2021. Details are forthcoming. Please continue to monitor our website and social media channels for further information.
