Incline Village, Nev. – The nonprofit Tahoe Fund announced today that Deirdra Walsh, general manager and vice president of Northstar California Resort, has joined its Board of Directors.

The Tahoe Fund supports environmental improvement projects in the Tahoe Basin that restore the forest, improve lake clarity, enhance outdoor recreation, and inspire greater stewardship of the natural environment.

Walsh oversees all year-round operations at Northstar, and as one of eight women leaders running resorts across the Vail Resorts portfolio, she is a champion of Vail Resort’s commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. She has already been instrumental on Tahoe Fund’s DEI committee and her new position on the Board will further support these efforts.

“We are thrilled to welcome Deirdra to the Tahoe Fund board,” said Allen Biaggi, Tahoe Fund board chair. “Her energy and commitment to the mission and goals of the Tahoe Fund are incredibly valuable to the ongoing success of the organization.”

“I am excited to join the Tahoe Fund Board and support the incredible vision of this organization,” shared Walsh. “I am grateful to have come to know Amy, the Tahoe Fund staff and the Board members over the last few years and I am so inspired by everyone that makes this such a dynamic and driven nonprofit.”
