Leadership changes

LAKE PLACID — The Trustees of the Adirondack Community Trust (ACT) oversee the stewardship of more than 210 charitable funds established by individuals and nonprofits for the benefit of Adirondack communities. In the fiscal year that ended June 2012, ACT made grants totaling $2.4 million.

Adele Connors of Lake Placid is stepping down as ACT’s co-chair after a nine-year term. On Oct. 26, she was recognized for her leadership by the full Board of Trustees. John Ernst of North Hudson and New York City will become co-chair with Vinny McClelland of Keene, whose service in that position continues.

Michael Ellis, the founder of the Community Fund for the Gore Mountain Region, also will depart from the ACT board.

ACT will welcome five new trustees and one new Advisory Council member:

Barbara Glaser of Raquette Lake and Saratoga Springs is president of the Nordlys Foundation and of Linell Lands Inc. She serves on the Board of Directors of the Saratoga Institute and the Community Hospice for the Greater Capital Region. She is the founder of the Open Space Project, now Saratoga PLAN, and an emeritus trustee of Great Camp Sagamore.
