We are pleased to announce our new Interim Executive Director
Lougheed House is pleased to announce that Sandra Morton Weizman, a highly regarded and deeply experienced Calgary based heritage consultant, has accepted the position of Interim Executive Director of Lougheed House (“the House”). Sandra replaces Kirstin Evenden, Lougheed House Executive Director since 2014, who has accepted a new position as Head of Business Development and Partnerships at the National Trust for Canada.
Sandra begins her term as Lougheed House Interim Executive Director on March 7, 2022 and will remain at the helm while our Board of Directors conducts a search for a permanent Executive Director, which is expected to occur over the coming few months.
Melissa Cook, Chair of the Board of Directors of the Lougheed House Conservation Society announced, “Sandra has a wealth of experience and knowledge of the museum industry in Alberta and in particular, has the added benefit of being a consultant with the House in the past, which makes her uniquely positioned to carry out this very important transitionary role at the House. Sandra brings a dynamic energy to the House and the board of directors is thrilled to be working with Sandra in the coming months in order to ensure a seamless transition that will set the House up for success in the coming years.”
Said Morton Weizman, “I have had a relationship with Lougheed House since 2005 and I have watched them undergo a transformation from being a traditional historic house museum to embracing the broader community through many new initiatives that both represent and interpret the stories of many diverse groups that make up Calgary. I am particularly excited about stewarding the new Lougheed Re-Imagined project to revitalize and transform their gallery spaces.”
