Island Elderly Housing

Names New Director

The board of directors of Island Elderly Housing Inc. has appointed Ann Wallace of Chilmark as executive director.

Ms. Wallace has served the organization as interim executive director since the retirement of Carol Lashnits last September. She formerly was director of Women’s Support Services at Martha’s Vineyard Community Services.

In a prepared statement John Early, the newly elected president of the board, said: “Ann’s extensive experience working in the nonprofit sector, her knowledge of and commitment to [Island Elderly Housing] as a longstanding member of the board and her ability to work effectively with both our staff and our residents made her our obvious choice. We are very fortunate to have her with us.”
