On behalf of Association for Community Living’s Board of Directors, I am pleased to announce that ACL has hired a new Executive Director who will start on May 1. I will remain throughout May to ensure a smooth transition.
Sebrina Barrett is an attorney with decades of experience in the non-profit and association world. She is a mission driven professional who, I am confident, is eminently qualified to lead ACL into the future, even in these turbulent times. The full Press Release can be found here.
I know that retiring in the middle of this pandemic may seem a strange choice, but I had announced this last year, the Board commenced the search and we found an extraordinary person to take my place. I have complete confidence in Sebrina and, of course, there never is a perfect time.
I hope I have an opportunity to say goodbye in person to many of the extraordinary people I have met over the years: non-profit providers, advocates, consultants, lawyers and other professionals, as well as my colleagues in government. I hope that many of us will stay in touch so I can tell you what it’s like to be retired!
Take care and stay safe!
Executive Director, Association for Community Living
