Queens Botanical Garden’s Board of Trustees has welcomed a new member.
Nancy Shannon, the vice president of human resources at Con Edison, joined the board this month.
A Queens resident, Shannon has over 30 years of managerial and leadership experience in human resources, environment, health and safety and customer operations.
She will play a big role in helping QBG advance its mission during her three-year term.
“The QBG is one of our city’s treasures because of its wonderful educational programs and dedicated environmental stewardship,” Shannon said. “I am honored, delighted and eager to help carry on such great work.”
