League to Save Lake Tahoe names new development director

Following a competitive national search, the League to Save Lake Tahoe has announced the hiring of Erica Mirich as its director of development. Having most recently served as senior director of annual giving for the Stevenson School in Pebble Beach, California, Mirich will be returning to Lake Tahoe, where she had previously served as director of development for the Lake Tahoe School in Incline Village. Mirich also holds a master’s degree in science education from Harvard and brings classroom experience as a science educator.

“We look forward to welcoming Erica to the Keep Tahoe Blue team. Her passion for the lake and unique experience with both environmental education as well as relationship building will be an asset to not only the League but to Tahoe,” said Darcie Goodman Collins, the League’s executive director.

Mirich’s first day will be March 28. She will be joining the League’s leadership team of directors, which includes Goodman Collins, deputy director Jesse Patterson and finance director Karen Hodges.

“I am thrilled to be joining the outstanding team at the League to Save Lake Tahoe as director of development,” Mirich said. “I look forward to connecting people to our mission, securing support for critical programs, and being a conduit for people who want to have a meaningful impact on something they care about — keeping Tahoe blue now and for the future. It matters on so many levels, to so many people near and far. It is an honor to represent the League.”

The League is dedicated to community engagement and education, and collaborating to find solutions to Tahoe’s environmental challenges. The League’s main campaigns include combating pollution, promoting restoration, tackling invasive species and protecting Tahoe’s shoreline.

“It would be hard to find a better fit for a development director who could arrive so ready to advance our science-based advocacy and education efforts than Erica Mirich,” said Robert Damaschino, a member of the League’s board and chair of the board’s development committee. “I’m confident that Erica’s combination of development experience, her first-hand familiarity with Lake Tahoe, and her strong science background will enable her to hit the ground running and help us continue to grow the League’s programs to protect Lake Tahoe for years to come.”
