Leadership Update: Recognizing 18 Years of Service
Edward Goodell speaks about restoring the Darlington Schoolhouse as the Trail Conference's headquarters at the building's grand opening on Sept. 12, 2015.


Our long-time Executive Director, Edward Goodell, has left his position with the Trail Conference. We wish him continued success as he pursues new career opportunities. We thank him for his dedicated service and growth of the Trail Conference during his 18 years as Executive Director, including securing our award-winning home in the historic Darlington Schoolhouse and placing the organization on solid footing for continued future growth.
In March, Joshua Howard was named our Chief Operating Officer responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Trail Conference and Mary Perro was named our Chief Financial Officer responsible for all financial matters. Mary is a certified CPA and Josh has 18 years of experience at the Trail Conference. Our new leadership team is excited to dig into a new season of good work and accomplish even more great things as we head into our second century of service. Stay tuned for details about an upcoming hike with Mary and Josh; they’d love to get to know you better and answer any questions you may have.
