HWA director moves on
After 18 years at the helm of Haywood Waterways Association, Eric Romaniszyn is leaving his position as the organization’s executive director.
After 18 years, I decided it was time for a change, and I will be going back to the science side of aquatic work,” he said in an announcement published Feb. 4. “I’ve met and worked with many great folks over the years, and it truly is amazing to see all that we accomplished. I am very proud of what we’ve done together, which made this decision that much tougher.”
Romaniszyn’s last day will be Friday, Feb. 11, but he will assist HWA past that date in navigating the hiring process and transitioning to a new executive director. With his new employer based out of Hendersonville, Romaniszyn will remain in the area, retain his HWA membership and attend events.
