GSMD Operations Announcement

It is with personal regret but warm wishes that the General Society of Mayflower Descendants announces the semi-retirement of Executive Director Dr. Walter Powell.

Dr. Powell has informed the Executive Committee and the GSMD staff he would like to semi-retire and graciously agreed to maintain the ship's helm while we search for his replacement. As GSMD's first Executive Director, Walt has been an essential part of our organization since July 2013. 

Not wanting to say a final goodbye, we have offered him a new title which he has accepted. Walt will become Editor of the Mayflower Journal and will also be available to GSMD as a Special Projects Consultant as needed. We wish him the best of success as he settles into his new season of life.
