Fort Lauderdale, FL, USA /PRWEB/– The world’s largest collection of LGBT historical artifacts and documents, the Stonewall National Museum & Archives (SNMA), has a new Executive Director. After a national search by SNMA, David Jobin has been named to the position following a unanimous vote of both the search committee and Board of Directors of the Fort Lauderdale-based museum, library and archives. He takes over June 1.
Jobin has been Executive Director of the 250-voice Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington, D.C., since 2009, and is credited with helping it to significantly bolster fundraising and community outreach programs. Prior to his work with the Chorus, Jobin spent 20 years in theater management in San Francisco and Pittsburgh.
In his new role at SNMA, Jobin will oversee all aspects of the operations, management and fundraising of the 40-year-old institution.
“David Jobin will bring a new dimension to the future of the Stonewall National Museum & Archives,” said Board Chair Thomas Tabor. “His national reach will help us develop and distribute LGBT educational materials based on our extensive archives. He will help us collect important LGBT materials, adding to items in our collection such as the gavel used by the Speaker of the House during the vote to end ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.’ And he will help us with national and global outreach as we partner with other LGBT organizations, as well as major libraries, museums and universities.”
Jobin echoed those comments and stated, “I am excited to be joining the Stonewall National Museum & Archives at this time of sweeping changes on issues critical to the LGBT community. I look forward to working with the board, staff and volunteers to capture and document this progress and to put it in context for this and future generations.”
Jobin holds a bachelor’s degree from Grove City College in Grove City, Pa. He will reside in Wilton Manors, Fla., with his husband, Angel Burgos.
