and a hugely successful fundraising campaign, Minds Eye ended the year in the black.
The road to success is paved with a few bumps along the way. Al Schon recently resigned as the Executive Director of the station. We are grateful for Al’s leadership and thank him for plotting our course for the last five years. With the continued efforts of our volunteers, advisory board members, and staff, we will continue to move ahead in our journey to serve those who are blind and print disabled.
As the new Executive Director, I am working with the Advisory Board to develop a business plan that will serve as our roadmap for the future. We will address ways to increase our listener base, promote greater agency visibility, and secure the funding to continue to build a strong organization. We are excited for this opportunity to continue to work towards being one of the best radio reading services in the world.
None of this would be possible without our hardworking volunteers, dedicated Advisory Board members, generous donors, and in my estimation, the best staff around. One group that deserves a phenomenal amount of credit for the great strides the station has made last year is our listeners. So many of them have offered their insights, and we have been working to implement their thoughts and suggestions. Thank you so much to all of you who have given of yourself to help support Minds Eye; you make us what we are.
