American Museum of Fly Fishing welcomes new Executive Director

MANCHESTER — The Board of Trustees of the American Museum of Fly Fishing is pleased to announce Sarah Foster as the Museum's new Executive Director.

A valued member of the AMFF team since 2007, Mrs. Foster brings a wealth of institutional knowledge to the position. She previously served as the Museum's Director of Development.

"Sarah is an AMFF staff veteran, highly respected by both the Trustees and staff, whose expertise will lead the Museum forward in a smart and positive way," said Karen Kaplan, AMFF Board President. "We greatly welcome her as our new Executive Director."

"The Museum has a wonderful Board and loyal supporters locally, across the country, and around the world," Foster said. "2018 marks the Museum's 50th anniversary, which is honorable in its own right, but coupled with the launch of our anticipated saltwater exhibition and the creation of a new permanent fly room, we have set the stage for an exciting year."

She went on to say, "The Museum is an important cultural landmark here in Vermont and also does a wonderful job serving the fly fishing community at large, and continues to be a place where angling historians, life-long enthusiasts, and new-comers alike can come together (either in person or online) to celebrate the rich history and tradition of our sport."

Mrs. Foster is a graduate of the University of Albany and holds a Bachelor's Degree in Anthropology and Business. She is a longtime resident of Shushan, New York where she lives with her husband and two children along the Battenkill River. She is an avid barrel racer and serves as treasurer at her local church.
