TR&HC Events executive director and assistant resign

Published 9:35am Monday, May 13, 2013

The TR&HC Events Board of Directors officially announces the acceptance of the formal resignations of executive director Laura Weicker and assistant director, Jennifer Hicks.

Both Weicker and Hicks will remain in their positions through July 31, after the completion of Tryon Riding & Hunt Club’s 2013 horse show season.

“The Board of Directors wholeheartedly support Laura and Jen as they transition on to new roles,” said TR&HC Events President Nancy Z. Wilson. “Their dedication to this organization is immense and they will be surely missed.”

Weicker, who assumed the position as executive director from her mother, Mitzi Dimpsey Lindsey, has grown up in The Tryon Riding & Hunt Club since age 4. Weicker began working in a paid position for the club in 2001.

Hicks joined in 2011.

A search committee has been formed to find replacements.
