The Regional Coalition of LANL Communities will have to conduct another search for an executive director.

In a statement released to the Los Alamos Monitor Thursday night, DeAnza Sapien of the MVM Group announced her organization will not be renewing the contract that is up on Aug. 1.

The Coalition met in Española Friday where Sapien made the announcement.

“The MVM Group has enjoyed serving as the Executive Office of the Regional Coalition and unfortunately, we are not going to pursue a renewal of our Regional Coalition Executive Services Agreement. After serious consideration and review of our business over the past year, the partners of the MVM Group have decided that, based on our current business model, we will not pursue a renewal of the contract,” Sapien said. 

“We have sincerely enjoyed working with the Regional Coalition board of local elected officials and engaging with the various stakeholders in northern New Mexico. We believe that the work of the Regional Coalition is critical to the region’s overall environmental and economic health.”
