EVERGREEN THEATRE ANNOUNCES NEW ARTISTIC PRODUCER
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE | April 23, 2013
Evergreen Theatre’s Board of Directors is pleased to announce a new artistic structure as Valmai Goggin assumes the role of Artistic Producer, replacing Jacqueline Russell who will step into the role of Director of Creative Development at the end of this season.
“We think that this coming year will be a strong transition for the organization,” says
Christina Chase-Warrier, President of the Board of Directors. “We are confident that Valmai’s vibrant energy and experience will continue the educational and environmental legacy of Evergreen Theatre. We are excited to continue working with Jacqueline in her new position and benefit from her expertise in guiding our program development.”
Originally from the Maritimes, Valmai Goggin is a director and theatre educator. Valmai has directed for numerous theatre companies across Alberta and even spent a year in Nunavut where she directed the first-ever production of Macbeth that far north. Valmai served as Assistant Artistic Producer for three seasons at Festival by the Marsh (Sackville NB) and has worked and trained across the country, including Magnetic North, the National Voice Intensive, DirectorsLabNorth, and the Banff Centre for the Arts. Valmai is the Co-Artistic Director for Theatre Transit, and the 2012-13 RBC Emerging Director at Lunchbox Theatre.
“Valmai is well versed in Evergreen’s mandate and approach. She has directed for us during the past two seasons and as such possesses a tangible understanding of our programs. I think she will bring an immense amount of passion to the job and I am excited to work with her this coming season to create a seamless transition,” comments outgoing Artistic Producer Jacqueline Russell.
Jacqueline Russell became Evergreen’s Artistic Producer in 2008; during her time with the organization, Evergreen Theatre expanded its new work development program, launched several new programs and established close ties with the professional theatre community.
“Jacqueline brought a new level of professionalism to our organization. We have benefited from her creative skills and leadership. We are delighted that she will remain involved with Evergreen during this upcoming transition,” says Chase-Warrier.

Calgary Chamber of Voluntary Organizations is pleased to announce the launch of the 2013 Alberta Nonprofit Survey. Now in its sixth edition, this annual survey enables us to perform trend analysis in key areas such as revenues, operating costs, human resources, and operational challenges.
The Alberta Nonprofit Survey remains the premier source of Alberta-specific research that documents the ongoing health and evolution of Alberta's nonprofit sector. The series has helped illustrate the changes occurring in Alberta's nonprofit sector since 2009. Results of past surveys have provided essential information to nonprofit leaders and boards, governments, funders and community stakeholders.
In addition to core questions that appear each year, this year's survey asks organizations about the impact of the elimination of Community Spirit and STEP grants, as well as their expectations on how the Social Policy Framework will shape their work. Overall, the 2013 survey is briefer than past editions.
Our 2012 survey drew over 500 respondents from across Alberta and represented all nonprofit sub-sectors. We hope you will support CCVO by completing the survey and distributing it to other nonprofits and charities in the province. It is critical that we get responses from all regions of the province, and all sizes and types of organization, so that our findings fully represent the breadth and diversity of Alberta's nonprofit sector. For more information, please contact CCVO at 403-261-6655 or email@example.com.
