Sled Golden Names new Executive Director

After a successful hunt with many highly qualified candidates, Sled Golden has announced their new Executive Director, Magi Scallion.

After three years of progressive growth, Sled Golden concluded that it could not longer rely on the benevolence of volunteers to manage the club and posted for a part-time executive director role in early September 2016. The role was to encompass sponsorship and employee management, tenure and permit management, and various administrative tasks.

Magi Scallion has lived in Golden for 3 years as well known to the club executive for her role in the development of a regional trails strategy for Golden and Area A.  Her expertise in grant writing and land planning, paired with her MBA from Queen’s University met all the requirements of the position and then some.

“I am really excited for my new role with Sled Golden,” shared Magi, “While I’ve not been very engaged with the snowmobiling culture locally, I am looking forward  to meeting new people and helping grow the club and snowmobiling in the area.  It’s going to be fun to work with such a strong club.  The board has great energy and our returning gate staff are genuine and passionate.”

Congratulations, Magi!  We’re happy to have you on board!
