Breakout Session Speaker - Online Event
Joining Alaska Chamber Singers (ACS) as Executive Director at the onset of the pandemic, Sue Sheard is the first ED for the 35-year strong organization. Although engaging an ED had been in the board’s strategic plan for several years, Sue brought wide-ranging skills and experience which proved beneficial for a quick switch to a virtual platform. With a background in branding, advertising/marketing, project management, and mission-driven nonprofits, Sue worked with ACS’ artistic director and tech team, which was comprised of ACS singers, to plan, and problem solve a manageable and successful virtual season. A native of Seattle, Washington, Sue now calls Anchorage, Alaska home. Anchorage has a robust and wonderful arts and music community with easy access to vast and amazing wildlands. After two years with ACS, Sue is thrilled to see Alaska Chamber Singers first in-person concert in April 2022.
