Abby Sadowsky, Communications Specialist for the Allegheny Conference on Community Development & Affiliates and Associate Producer of "Our Region's Business," was matched with City Theatre for the Leadership OnBoard (LOB) 2009-2010 program year. After serving for a few months on the City Theatre board in the LOB guest capacity, Abby was asked to serve as a full voting board member. Based on the wonderful experience Abby had during her LOB term, she enthusiastically accepted. Abby had this to say, "Being a part of LDI XVI was a personal and professional game changer for me and I wanted to continue the momentum through LOB after graduation. I was passionate about joining City Theatre from the beginning and my experience there has been wonderful. The staff and board members welcomed me openly and I in turn jumped in with both feet--eventually joining the Marketing Task Force, the Green Room young professionals initiative and the Annual Gala Planning Committee. I have been privileged to work behind the scenes of Pittsburgh's home for new plays and with this dynamic group of arts advocates. I am absolutely honored to join them as a full board member and would not have known how to make the most of my LOB opportunity without the leadership growth I gained from LPInc. Thank you!"
