VARD Executive Director Sandy Mason to step down
(Driggs. ID)— Valley Advocates for Responsible Development (VARD) announces that Sandy Mason has decided to step down as their Executive Director. Sandy has been involved with VARD from its earliest days, but as he said when explaining why he was stepping down, “it is time for (my wife) Mary and me to start working on our bucket list. Life is short. However, I want to stay involved with the important issues facing Teton Valley, but on a more relaxed project by project basis.”
During Sandy’s tenure, VARD has evolved from a small neighborhood group concerned about land use development to an organization of 400 plus members. Today, ten years later, VARD is a valuable community resource for local government and the citizens of Teton Valley, Idaho and Wyoming.
VARD is currently looking for a strong, passionate leader to carry the organization into the future. For a complete Executive Director job description, please visit Job openings. Resemblance to Santa Claus is not required, but is a plus.
