"When I was President of CAMDO, we hired Pauline Conley to be an acting Executive Director as we bridged from one ED to the next as well as sorted out problems that had arisen during the growth of the organization. We needed help to organize and plan how to set up the role of the permanent Executive Director and to complete the set up of a new strategic plan. Pauline was absolutely terrific – she quickly understood the strengths of our organization and how to find a balance between continuing to be ambitious while also being realistic about our resources. She provided expert advice and structure which ensured that CAMDO was stronger and more effective as a result of her work. While working with Pauline, I realized how beneficial it would be to hire her for assistance with planning at the University of Lethbridge Art Gallery. Pauline provided excellent assistance with succession planning, with sorting out priorities, and with leaving a structure in place to continue this kind of planning more efficiently and effectively. She was also simply a pleasure to work with and I continue to enjoy staying in touch and sharing ideas."
