To Pursue Personal, Family Interests
After 10 years of full-time service to the Professional Outdoor Media Association (POMA), Laurie Lee Dovey resigned her position as executive director. Dovey, a founding board member and officer, and POMA’s first executive director, told POMA’s board of directors it was time for a change, both personally and professionally.
“POMA has been my baby and I hate to move on, but we never know how much time we have left,” Dovey said. “There are many other things I want to do. I plan to travel familiar and new paths, as I return to my core business as a content provider, consultant and mentor through my company LLD Ink.
Dovey said she also was ready to get back on the road in her refurbished 1971 Silver Eagle bus and into the field, hunting, fishing and camping.
“Laurie Lee has been a mentor to me, a leader to this organization and a groundbreaker in the outdoor industry,” said Kevin Tate, Chairman of POMA’s Board of Directors, “but, most importantly, she’s been a friend.
“It will be a monumental task to replace her at Executive Director – we’re celebrating POMA’s 10th anniversary in January due in no small part to her work – but it will be an honor to help with a search that will be carried out with her legacy in mind.”
Day-to-day operations in the POMA office continue with staff already in place. POMA members or corporate partners with questions or concerns should reach out to Shelly Moore, membership director, at 814-254-4719.
POMA’s Board of Directors has formed a search committee and in the coming weeks will be working to identify candidates for the Executive Director position. Those interested in applying should direct their resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
