Friends of PACE: We want to share some exciting news with all of you. Chris Gates, our executive director for the past eight and a half years, has taken a new position. As of October 1st he'll be the new president of the Sunlight Foundation. The press release announcing his selection is linked here. We greatly appreciate everything Chris has done to build PACE into an important part of the philanthropic and civic engagement infrastructure and we hope you will join us in wishing him well in his new venture. We all look forward to continuing to work with him in his exciting new capacity.
As we've seen from the appetite for the shorter preview piece that Rourke and Chris Gates recently published in the Chronicle of Philanthropy, there is a huge amount of interest in this topic.
