Earlier this year, Wallace entered the race for Park City Council, then dropped out before the primary election, saying she needed more balance in her life
PARK CITY, Utah — On Tuesday, the Park City Institute announced its leadership is changing again, signaling a new chapter for one of Park City’s oldest non-profit organizations.
Recently named Executive Director Betsy Wallace is stepping down from that role. Wallace will join the institute’s board of directors and oversee grant management; she will also spearhead the finance committee and continue her work curating the institute’s speaker series.
Earlier this year, Wallace entered the race for Park City Council, where she was thought to be a front-runner — but she dropped out at the beginning of August, in advance of the primary election.
“After stepping down from Sundance Institute this past March, moving into the Executive Director role at Park City Institute May 1st and the start of my city council campaign at the end of May, I find my life has become significantly more unbalanced than I had anticipated,” Wallace said at the time.
“It has been an honor to serve as the Executive Director of Park City Institute, and I am immensely proud of the incredible summer experiences we have brought to our community,” Wallace said in a press release this week. “I am confident that the organization is poised for an exciting future under the leadership of our Interim Executive Director, Ember Conley.”
“I am thrilled to join Park City Institute and have the opportunity to contribute to its legacy,” Conley said in a press release. “Our commitment to providing world-class entertainment remains unwavering, and I look forward to working closely with our team, stakeholders, and the community to ensure our mission endures.”
