Ski & Snowboard Club Vail is excited to announce that Euginnia Manseau has accepted the role of Director of Development and Events with SSCV, effective April 1, 2014.

Euginnia has been with the club for 9 years, and has successfully served in a number of positions including Member Services and most recently as Manager of Events. Euginnia has led the way on a very positive season for the club in many areas, including community, fundraising and competitive events. Highlights included enthusiastically supported Celebration of Winter Cocktail Party and Leadership Council Dinner; two Nor-Am events in both Alpine and Freestyle; and well attended Vail Cup and Town Series races. Euginnia has demonstrated the ability to both effectively organize and oversee events, to drive high levels of participation and to exceed fundraising objectives.

In her new role, Euginnia will be responsible for development and events for the club. She will begin working to seek out candidates for a Development/Event assistant that we expect will start with the club this summer. In the new structure, Euginnia will take the lead on development initiatives, be able to provide a unified voice to our external audiences for fundraising and sponsorship, and integrate development and events to the maximum benefit of the club, the membership and the community. Euginnia will supervise the Development/Event assistant, who will execute events through the season and provide additional support on development initiatives as needed.

As we went through the search to replace Emmy Hoyt, our current Development Manager, we reached out across the Vail Community and received considerable interest both locally and outside of the area. We had more than 30 applicants for the position, interviewed more than 10, and had some terrific candidates to consider. During the search we also looked for ways to leverage some of the common threads in the current structure of our organization, and we ultimately decided that the combination of skills that Euginnia offered in both fundraising and events would lead to the best situation for the club in the future.

As many of you know, Emmy Hoyt is leaving the club at the end of the season. Her last day with SSCV will be May 15. She has graciously agreed to stay on during a transition period to support Euginnia and the organization. Emmy will be relocating to Steamboat full time. We will miss her greatly and we deeply appreciate her contributions while with SSCV.

Please join us in congratulating Euginnia both for her terrific work with the club and for her new and exciting opportunity!
