Longtime IBMA staff member Jill Crabtree will be departing no later than July 1, 2013.
“We’ll certainly miss Jill,” said IBMA Executive Director Nancy Cardwell. “She has worked tirelessly for the organization and contributed greatly to much of what we’ve accomplished since 2000. We wish her well.”
In her resignation letter Crabtree said, “I care about the future of IBMA a great deal and hope the events will thrive in Raleigh, NC. The facilities, performances and other events planned for World of Bluegrass Week will certainly be something to see and the potential is exciting. But with any big change comes a need to approach things in a new manner. I feel the organization will benefit from the fresh perspective of someone who can assist the current IBMA leadership with their new set of goals. I’ve learned a great deal in my tenure at IBMA and want to thank everyone who has supported me over these past 13 years. My passion and support of the bluegrass music community will certainly continue.”
