New Brooklyn Heights Association Executive Director: Lara Birnback

You may recall that back in March, Peter Bray resigned as Executive Director of the Brooklyn Heights Association to tend to a serious family health issue. Mary Frost at the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reports that Brooklyn Heights resident Lara Birnback has been chosen as his successor. Ms. Birnback’s past experience includes 15 years of experience in the public, nonprofit, and international development sectors as a project leader, trainer/facilitator, and communications specialist. Her latest position was  Director of Capacity Building Initiatives in the Neighborhood Development Division at NYC Small Business Services.

    I for one welcome our new BHA overlord.

    Seriously, I look forward to working with her, as closely as I worked with Peter Bray.

  • Lara Birnback

    Hmmm – as long as it’s as a benevolent overlord, I can work with that title. :-)

    I look forward to working with you as well Andrew! Can’t wait to get started.
