It is officially my first week as Executive Director and I wanted to let you know that The Nickelodeon and its members have been on my mind. I want to get to know as many of you as possible and make sure you know how much you are appreciated. It is the membership base that has helped The Nick sustain its mission during many transitional periods and we are once again relying on your support. This time we want you to know that we see that dedication and moving forward, I will have an open door, phone line and email to hear from and reach out to you all. Thank you for keeping The Nickelodeon a community space here in Columbia. Feel free to email me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org.
