The Board of Directors of The Meadows Community Association is delighted to announce that Frances Rippcondi has been named its new General Manager. Many of you know her as the Operations Manager of the MCA and have experienced her friendly, open style and her ability to solve problems quickly and effectively.

You might not know that Frances has a strong background in landscape and c ommunity design and led project teams working on development and redevelopment projects, working with developers, builders, contractors and local governments. The Board is excited that we were able to find someone on our staff who has all the skills we are looking for in a manager to lead the Renaissance of The Meadows.

Initially, Frances did not apply for the manager position, but during the months that she has been doing much of the job on an interim basis, she discovered that she liked the work she was doing on the Renaissance team and that her skills were a wonderful fit for the current duties of the MCA Manager. I hope you are as pleased as I am that we were able to find such a good fit within our organization and wish her the very best in her new position.

          — Claire Coyle, President, The Meadows Community Association
