The Board of Directors of Rugby Oregon is pleased to announce that Laci Betts has been promoted to the role of Executive Director effective January 1st, 2020.
Laci has been working with Rugby Oregon for two years as Operations Manager. Prior to joining RO, she had a 20-year career in operations and project management at Hewlett-Packard. She has also served on the School Board for Santiam Christian Schools over the last 8 years including 3 years as President.
Additionally, Laci is a Rugby Oregon coach and stood out among a highly qualified pool of candidates as being uniquely positioned to step into the role of ED, ensure a seamless transition, and bring new ideas to further enhance our mission.
The Board thanks Jenn Heinrich for her 17-year contribution. During that time Rugby Oregon has grown from an 8 team start-up to a viable entity entering its 20th year of operation, serving several thousand members, and respected nationwide as a USA Rugby Platinum-level State Rugby Organization. Jenn will continue to support Laci and the organization during the transition.
