B2Launch founder and chief consultant, Rebecca MacLeod, was recently elected as Vice President of Seattle's Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI) Board of Trustees. Rebecca has been on the Board for the past four years and will serve alongside Chad Richardson of Enrico Products as co-Vice President and under President, Maureen Frisch, for the 2018 term.
When asked for her thoughts about MOHAI and serving as Vice President, Rebecca MacLeod said:
"Many people think of MOHAI as the place where Seattle's history is preserved, but it is in fact an incredibly important place for planting the seeds for our region's future. MOHAI serves over 30,000 Seattle-area school students each year, engaging them in hands-on activities both at the museum and in their own classrooms. MOHAI sponsors important events and exhibits that bring all facets of our community together, challenging us to think critically about pressing issues and work together to find solutions. MOHAI is a treasure trove of artifacts and stories that narrate the rich tapestry of our region, displaying a complete and thorough journey through Seattle's early history all the way up to current and emerging innovation. MOHAI is the place where innovation-in-the-making is tracked and celebrated through exhibits in the Bezos Center for Innovation and in partnerships like the one with Geekwire on the annual Seattle 10 awards featuring the city's hottest emerging start-ups. It has been so exciting to be a part of supporting this important local treasure as it grows and flourishes in our ever-evolving community. I very much look forward to serving as Vice President this year."
B2Launch has been a proud sponsor of MOHAI, most recently participating as a sponsor of the 2017 HistoryMakers Gala in November. Read more about that event in Seattle Met Magazine's Met Pages.
