Bon Voyage Cathy!

In case you haven’t heard…

Cathy has decided to take a sabbatical year, starting March 1st, 2015.

In her absence, the Executive Director responsibilities will be shared by Erin Huck and Bohdanna Kinasevych. As Acting Executive Director, Erin will assume an internally focused, operational role including human resources and reporting to the Board of Directors. Bohdanna’s role will expand to include responsibility for external partner relationships and quality assurance for planning and evaluation.

Cathy will be using holiday time in February so, if you have any questions or would like to discuss a specific project, please contact Erin or Bohdanna.

See you in 2016, Cathy!
