On October 1st Sally Prouty, the first ever PACE Fellow, will return to PACE as our Senior Fellow and serve as the organization’s part-time director while the board conducts a strategic plan and searches for a replacement for Chris Gates. After eight and a half years at PACE, Gates was named on September 8th as the new President of the Sunlight Foundation, a Washington-based organization that is focused on increasing transparency and accountability in government and politics using the tools of technology, big data and journalism. Sally will work with the PACE board on their planning and search process and represent PACE in the civic engagement and philanthropic communities for the next six months. She can be reached directly at Sally@PACEfunders.org.
