New Foundation Representative Manager

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Urantia Foundation has appointed Kathleen Swadling to succeed Seppo Kanerva as Foundation Representative Manager. Kathleen, along with her husband, Trevor, has been managing the Foundation's Australian Office since 1992. She has been a steadfast supporter and worked closely with Urantia Foundation since 1989, recently spending three years in Chicago as Development Coordinator and Community Relations.

Seppo resigned his position as Representative Manager due to his increasingly heavy workload as Translation Manager. He currently oversees a team of more than sixty translators at work on nineteen translation efforts. We are very grateful to Seppo for all the hard work he has invested in managing and coordinating the Foundation Representative activities. He was instrumental in laying the groundwork for the Representative program.

There are now 23 Foundation Representatives assisting with the seeding of the revelation in various countries and regions around the world.

Foundation Representative operations will now be organized under the Reader Service Department of Urantia Foundation. This reflects the fact that the bulk of a Representative's work is to foster study groups and work with readers on other socialization aspects of the teachings of The Urantia Book.

Kathleen will work closely with James Woodward, Manager of Reader Services, and Bob Solone, Spanish Liaison, in the head office. The three of them will work together to ensure that local readers receive the highest level of support and services that Urantia Foundation can provide. (Note: Kathleen is also back at the helm of this publication and will serve as Community Relations Coordinator as well as Representative Manager.) We are very confident in Kathleen's ability to direct this expanding international network of dedicated volunteers.
