Terry Swan resigns as DAC board president

Terry Swan resigned last week as president of the Durango Arts Center’s board of directors. Swan cited health issues and the desire to travel with his spouse, Dinah, as his reasons for resigning.
In his resignation, Swan wrote, “The Durango Arts Center is a vibrant community facility. It was my honor to serve as president of the organization for over two years. However, my wife and I made the determination that I needed to focus on my health. DAC has been a community institution for more than 50 years, and it undoubtedly will carry on the rich tradition of sustaining and supporting the arts. I especially enjoyed my time working with Sheri Rochford Figgs, executive director, and the excellent staff and volunteers at DAC. I will miss my daily involvement, yet I plan to stay engaged with the 10-Minute Play Contest and other areas of interest at the DAC as my schedule permits. Moreover, I truly enjoyed my time as president of the board and working on behalf of the Durango Arts Center.”
Rochelle Mann, vice president and chairwoman of the 10-Minute Play Contest, will assume the board presidency through 2012. Sandra Mapel, board member and also a member of the DAC docents and Textiles Today exhibit committee, will assume the role of vice president through 2012. The board is recruiting new members and will work on a long-term strategic plan.
