BCA chair stepping down

Boston Center for the Arts board chairman David Hacin (left) will be stepping down from the position when his term expires next month after holding it for six years. Philip Lovejoy, who has served on the 27-member board of directors for three or four years, will take over the job at the BCA’s annual meeting on June 18, though their terms will somewhat overlap.

Asked if there was a reason that Hacin was stepping down, BCA communications manager Alyssa Mikiko DiPasquale said, “Nope. It’s been six years. That’s all.”

Hacin, who will continue to serve on the board, will be honored with the institution’s Champion Award 2008 at the BCA’s “Cabaret and Cocktails: A Salute to David Hacin” at the Beehive on June 9. According to the BCA, the award recognizes his “outstanding leadership in engaging Boston’s youth and neighborhoods in the arts, and for supporting the arts as central to urban design and community development."

Hacin is the principal of the Boston architecture and interior design firm Hacin + Associates.
