The Working Harbor Committee of New York and New Jersey Seeks Executive Director

As you all know, we lost our dear Captain John Doswell last year. In our quest to continue Capt. John’s vision, we are announcing our search for an executive director to help us further the mission of the WHC.

The Mission of the Working Harbor Committee is to strengthen awareness of the working harbor’s history and vitality today, and its opportunities for the future.

The Working Harbor Committee produces maritime educational programs and boat tours as well as community events, such as the annual Great North River Tugboat Race and Competitions.

By involving people in learning how the harbor works and what it does, and educating them about the rich and challenging history of the harbor, the Working Harbor Committee strives to increase awareness of the importance of our magnificent working harbor.

The plot thickens…

Clearwater’s Executive Director Peter Gross has resigned. This occurred right after the 20 January announcement of the cancellation of the annual Clearwater Festival.

Poughkeepsie Journal: Following the resignation announcement Wednesday, Anne Osborn, president of the organization’s board of directors, told the Journal that she had, “that feeling of exhilaration you get about a week into a diet, when it starts being easier to run and you can swim more laps and you feel more fit.”

She continued, “The feeling in the office is lighter. There is a plan. We have next steps and we know who’s taking them.” Osborn said, a search for a new executive director won’t be launched until at least the end of summer. Read more from the Poughkeepsie Journal here…
