To the Cortland Community,

It has been my pleasure to serve as the Executive Director for the Cultural Council of Cortland County. I am so grateful for the wonderful memories and experience that I have gained during my time in this position.

After much consideration, I have accepted the position as Marketing and PR Manager for a non-for profit in Tompkins County. Unfortunately, this means that I have resigned from the Cultural Council.

I am looking to the community to help us find the right Director to lead the future of our organization. As we transition to new leadership, I will work part time while the search committee finds my replacement. We have an extremely supportive and involved Board of Directors that are so passionate about the arts, and I am confident that the Council will continue to thrive.

If you are interested in our part-time Executive Director position or know someone that is, please feel free to share this opportunity with them. Interested candidates can e-mail with their resume, a cover letter, and three references. For a full description of the position, please visit
Thank you for your support,
Thena Gitlin
