Sarah Audet, Interim Executive Director
Sarah first started working with the Champlain Valley Farmer Coalition in August 2020 as a communications and media consultant. She was named Interim Executive Director, effective January 31, 2022, when John Roberts was appointed by President Joe Biden to serve as USDA State Executive Director for the Farm Service Agency in Vermont.
Sarah, who has a strong background in nonprofit leadership, strategic planning, and board development, will closely partner with the Board of Directors to develop a shared vision for moving the organization forward, both strategically and operationally. Sarah will support the board with its search for the new Executive Director, and once that person is hired, she will ensure a smooth transition and success in their role. She will also continue to oversee all internal and external communications for the organization, and manage the annual #Farm24VT event.
Sarah started in her position on January 31, and will continue until July 31.
