Greetings! This has been a busy month, and we are making progress at a number of new initiatives here at the DAC. First and foremost, we are very excited to announce the hiring of a new administrative manager for the DAC. Kate Goodrich started in her new position on March 18. We had many wonderful candidates that applied, and we were excited to extend an offer to Kate. She has years of work experience in similar roles, and she has been assisting with Danish language classes as a volunteer here at the DAC. Kate is quickly settling into the role, and is going to be a wonderful addition to the staff at the DAC. Please greet her and welcome her!
