St Louis County Heritage & Arts Center, The Depot

After six months on the job at St Louis County Depot, The Depot’s’ first director has an emerging vision for the historic building.

The Performance Excellence Network is pleased to welcome Mary Tennis, director of the St Louis County Heritage & Arts Center, The Depot, to our Jan 15 TPPEN breakfast: “Flooded with Ideas: A New Visioning Process For an Old Building.”

Mary will share a summary of lessons learned about systems, creating a vision with six active non-profit organizations, navigating/cultivating relationships within a massive government entity, and learning to live (for now)with a prehistoric HVAC. From security upgrades to many heart-to-heart conversations, the position of Depot Director has been fast-paced and challenging, with some huge wins. Mary will share some stories and some strategies as she settles in.

The discussion will be hosted by The Depot; details after registration.  Continental breakfast will be served from 7:00 to 7:30 with the discussion from 7:30 to 8:30 am. No cost for members; $20 for non-members.
