Development, has retired. Barbara came to FBR after a long career in Development for the Arts – her other love. She was responsible for overseeing all fundraising activities, board member recruitment and annual, capital and endowment campaigns. She also served as FBR’s interim CEO in 2002. Barbara wore many hats for the organization and did a remarkable job in each position she held.
In early January, peers, partners and family gathered together to send Barbara off in style at a retirement party honoring her dedication. The pinnacle of the evening occurred when Board Chair, Richard Treich, unveiled the new name of the Development wing of FBR’s office: The “Barbara Arko Development Center.” Here’s to you Barbara! You will be missed!
This plaque hangs inside the Development Offices at FBR.
Barbara’s husband and daughters joined us in celebrating her retirement.
