Nevada County native Caleb Dardick has been chosen as the next Executive Director of the South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL) following a nationwide search. John Regan, SYRCL Board Vice President, knows Caleb and his father Sam and their dedication to the Yuba Watershed.
“We are particularly excited about Caleb. He has an incredible blend of expertise and experience and skills in coalition building and communications and launching strategic campaigns. We are just thrilled that he has decided to leave the bay area and come on back home and help feed our organization.”
Dardick grew up on the San Juan Ridge and is the son of former two-term Nevada County Supervisor and disability rights activist Sam Dardick, who passed away in May, and Geeta Dardick, a marriage and family therapist. Caleb managed his father’s first campaign for Supervisor and remains deeply connected to the county. A graduate of Nevada Union High School, Caleb earned a B.A. in History with honors at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Caleb will begin as Executive Director of SYRCL on September 12, 2011.
