We are sad to announce the resignation of Scott Chamoff as Chairman and member of the DFT Advisory Board. Scott stepped into leadership during a difficult time and was instrumental in guiding us through that difficulty and into a much better position. Scott, along with his wife Vicki and Darrell Spencer assumed leadership of DFT until our new Managing Director was brought on board.
Scott has been a loyal friend and supporter of DFT and he assures us that this will always be the case. Scott's passion for theater and his genuine concern for our theater community as well as his calm and reasoned disposition earned him the respect of all who had the privilege to work alongside him.
Although made difficult by the COVID situation, we are working on an appropriate way to honor Scott's service and deal with the void his resignation creates on the board.
