Changes at Iowa Rivers Revival

On behalf of the Iowa Rivers Revival board of directors, I would like to announce that Molly Hanson is resigning as our executive director effective at the end of this month. Molly let us know in June of her plans to leave IRR in order to pursue a new employment opportunity.

While we are sad to see Molly leave, we are proud of the amazing work she has done in realizing our important mission during her tenure and wish her the very best in her new position. The board would like to thank Molly for her steadfast leadership over the last 3-4 years.

During this transitional period, IRR will continue our important programming, outreach, and advocacy for Iowa’s rivers. IRRs board of directors are working with Molly and other partners in transition planning and we are actively engaged in finding an interim executive director/program manager, along with beginning the search for our next executive director.

We are committed to a seamless transition process and continuing our current programs without interruption during this transition period. Moving forward, we will keep everyone apprised of transition developments. Should any of our valued supporters, partners, or the public have any questions or concerns, please reach out and contact IRR. The board of directors appreciates your ongoing support during this leadership transition.

As Molly would say, “Thanks for the river love.”


Matt Kaufman

IRR Board Chair
