Tallac Association names new staff members
The Tahoe Tallac Association and the board of directors has named two new staff members. Alice DeBerry Kane has been selected as director of cultural events and Suzanne Lindstrom will be manager of facilities.
Kane served as marketing director for the Ojai Music Festival at Ojai, Calif., and was the former owner of several travel companies prior to moving to Lake Tahoe with her husband, Patrick. She is a graduate of the University of California, Santa Barbara and recently earned her master’s degree in fine arts from Bennington College in Vermont. She will start Feb. 1.
Under the leadership of Kane, the Tahoe Tallac Association plans to expand the 2003 Arts and Cultural calendar to add new events and programs. Included will be interactive arts and writing workshops and expanded use of the Valhalla Boathouse Theater, which be of interest to both the greater Lake Tahoe community and its visitors. The Tahoe Tallac Association will expand programming at all properties.
Lindstrom has worked for the Tahoe Tallac Association since 1990, and was the first employee hired by Carol Spain. Spain was TTA’s first and only director since its inception in the late 1970s. She resigned in September to pursue her travel and art interests and to spend more time with her family.
Lindstrom will be in charge of the day-to-day hands-on management and booking and financials of the TTA properties and facilities. These include the Valhalla Grand Hall, Valhalla Boathouse Theater, Cultural Arts Store and the Tallac-Vista Conference Center. The center, the association’s site at Heavenly Valley, can host 75 to 150 guests for weddings, conferences, events and lectures.
Lindstrom has lived at Lake Tahoe since 1979, is married to Mike and has three children. She is pursuing her degree in business.
“Suzanne has ‘grassroots’ knowledge about the organization and will continue to be an asset to the association,” said Vicki Hanes, president of the Tahoe Tallac Association board of directors.
Board members of the Tahoe Tallac Association are Dennis Crabb, David Kurtzman, Dave Solaro, Mike Atwell, Ken Daley, Jerry Lasarow, Pat Amundson, Jim Jones, John Ceko, Deb Darby and Vicki Hanes.
“The 2003 calender will be filling up quickly and you are urged to call and reserve space at these facilities for your events,” Hanes said.
