Sustainable Princeton Welcomes New Board Members and a new Board President.
Princeton’s local climate-changed-focused community organization continues to grow.
[Princeton, NJ]: Sustainable Princeton is pleased to announce the addition of two new members to the board of trustees. Eve Coulson, who previously served on the board for six years, has been named Board President, taking over the role from Yamile Slebi. The organization also welcomed Greg Evans, a Princeton resident and the Corporate Director of Sustainability for Penn Medicine, to the board.
“A healthy nonprofit requires a healthy transition of its board, and we are lucky to have the best of the best serve on our board. We are so grateful for Yamile Slebi’s tireless work as she terms off from serving as a trustee and board president. Her passion and positivity were especially appreciated during the pandemic years. I’m looking forward to working with Eve and Greg,” Christine Symington said.
“Eve has been a longtime supporter of Sustainable Princeton and has modeled her home as an example of how residents can work to protect the local ecosystem in their yards. Greg brings incredible institutional knowledge and experience and does incredible work for Penn Medicine. We’re thrilled to have both of them join as leaders.”
In addition to welcoming new board members, Sustainable Princeton also welcomed new team members in 2022, including:
- Elana Berk, Communications and Outreach Manager
- Lisa Nicolaison, Project Manager
- Becca Goldman, Operations Coordinator
And, if you missed our press release in 2022 or have not attended a Sustainable Princeton event in the past year, Sustainable Princeton welcomed longtime volunteer-turned-program director Christine Symington as its new Executive Director.
While there were many changes, one person who remains a consistent team asset is Jenny Ludmer, Program Manager, who works with the municipality and Princeton Public Schools to help them reach their sustainability goals.
