Glen Gilbert Takes the Helm at Cascade AIDS Project
By Erin Rook, PQ Monthly Cascade AIDS Project welcomed Glen Gilbert as the organization's new executive director Saturday night at the annual CAP Art Auction (check out photos here). Gilbert most recently served as director of theÂ Oregon Lions Sight & Hearing Foundation and brings 18 years experiencing managing nonprofits includingÂ the Cascadia Region Green Building Council, the World Forestry Center and Museum, and the Berkeley Public Library Foundation. â€œI am thrilled to be joining CAP," Gilbert says in a release. "There has never been a more optimistic and hopeful time to be part of the HIV/AIDS movement. This war is not over but it is winnable. After 30 years, we can finally envision a reality in which HIV and AIDS are no longer part of our daily lives, but only part of our history.â€ Gilbert, who lives in Portland with his wife Tori and children Marina and Matthew,Â starts at CAP on May 1. Mary Marshall, CAP's director of finance and operations, has been serving as interim director since Michael Kaplan left last fallÂ to work as Executive Director for AIDS United in Washington, D.C.Â Kaplan announced his departure just before the 2012 AIDS Walk in September.
