Erskine to direct Leadership Academy of Madison County

ANDERSON — The board of directors of the Leadership Academy of Madison County (LAMC) has named Beth Erskine the organization’s new executive director, according to a Friday press release.

Erskine, most recently human resources director for Hopewell Center, has more than two decades of experience in human resources, finance and nonprofit management.

“Beth’s qualifications make her perfectly suited for the position,” said Quang Vinh, LAMC board chairman. “Between her leadership roles in both business and community and longstanding, active relationship with LAMC ... we are excited to see what she can bring to the role.”

A Ball State University graduate with majors in business and secondary education, Erskine began her career in the banking industry.

Erskine serves on several boards, including the LAMC board, and is an active community volunteer, according to the press release. A 1996 graduate of LAMC, Erskine has also led sessions for the Youth Leadership Academy — a branch of LAMC focused on the county’s youth.

“LAMC is such a part of the fabric of our family that this is more than a job to me — it’s a passion,” said Erskine, whose husband, Gary, is a graduate and father-in-law, Carl, is a founding member. “I believe not only in the mission of LAMC, but also the people and community that it serves.”

Started in 1981 as a lecture series, LAMC has evolved to become a community think tank and talent incubator, with more than a thousand graduates.

Erskine will replace current LAMC Executive Director Bobbette Snyder, who recently announced that she will retire.
