Important Announcement from Lakeside Chautauqua Board Chair

Posted on August 06, 2021

To the Lakeside Community:

The Lakeside Association Board of Directors received the resignation of its President & CEO Daniel Rogers. Daniel joined Lakeside Chautauqua in August 2020. During his leadership much was accomplished, including the opening of the Slack House Historic Café, development of a comprehensive strategic plan for the community, and emergency repairs to the Lakeside dock after a disastrous Memorial Day weekend storm.

Daniel’s time at Lakeside has made him realize he misses leading direct human impact organizations and directly making a difference in people’s lives. For the reasons the Board recruited Daniel to Lakeside, the Board understands Daniel’s resignation in favor of his return to the field of human endeavor. His vision and commitment to evolving Lakeside Chautauqua into a year-round destination will be missed. The Association Board wishes to express its appreciation of Daniel and his contributions to Lakeside Chautauqua.

The Board’s leadership will be working with the Lakeside Senior Staff on a transition plan and successful completion of the summer season.

The Lakeside Board of Directors requests your prayers, thoughts and grace for Daniel, the staff, and our Lakeside community.


Bob Grimm
