The Perry-Mansfield School and Camp for the Performing Arts has named Joe Haines Director of Organizational Development, a role in which he will be responsible for leading all aspects of the 109-year-old camp’s development and communications programs.
In addition to offering summer residential programs and camps focusing on dance, theater, and equestrian areas, the camp is working on a major renovation of the Julie Harris Theater on its campus.
“I’m thrilled to join a wonderful arts organization with such a rich history,” Haines said. “Perry-Mansfield combines two of my passions, a love for the outdoors and the performing arts.”
The board also sees great things with Haines stepping into the new role.
“Joe is a seasoned nonprofit leader with extensive fundraising and donor relations experience,” said Rob Schwartz, Chairman of the Board of Perry-Mansfield. “This is an important time for our organization, and Joe brings a wealth of knowledge and experience that will have an immediate and positive impact.”
Perry-Mansfield is in the first phase of a fundraising campaign to renovate the historic Julie Harris Theater.
Additionally, Perry-Mansfield and Friends of the Yampa Valley Arts have announced plans to merge in the fall of 2021, so they are working on that transition.
“Joe’s appointment couldn’t come at a more critical time for the organization,” Schwartz said.
