540WMain Adds New Staff to Growing “Communiversity”

Dear Community,

Running a grassroots “communiversity” is hard work! Developing, curating, and (yes) cancelling courses based on the needs and wants of the community at any given time makes my work as Executive Director super challenging but I couldn’t see myself doing anything else. I love this work along with the good and the not so great. That said, as 540WMain grows the need to build my team of support becomes more important and imperative for the continued growth and sustainability of Rochester’s only communiversity.

It is for this reason that I am excited to announce the addition of two new roles. Adam Eaton has signed on as 540WMain’s Assistant Director. And addition to his role as Advertising & Social Media Assistant; Ray Ray Mitrano is also serving as the first class Class Coordinator at 540WMain.
