We would like to congratulate David Knapp on taking up a new role with his previous employer in the financial services industry. David joined the Foundation as Executive Director in November 2019. We are grateful for many positive contributions he has made and truly wish him well in future.
In preparation for David’s departure, and to manage the transition while we search for a new ED, the Board is very pleased to announce that Kathy Butler has agreed to act as Interim Executive Director. Many of you will know Kathy from her role as Executive Director of the Okanagan College Foundation from 2003 to 2018. Kathy is highly regarded as a manager and consultant in the non-profit sector and has deep roots in the community. The Central Okanagan Foundation is certain to benefit from her extensive experience during this transition. As you may be aware, a search for a new Executive Director has already commenced and is ongoing. A link to the job posting on our website.
We hope this message finds you well during these challenging times. Our next newsletter will be out soon to update you on our recent activities as we continue to keep an eye on community needs and act on opportunities to support the Central Okanagan Region.
Brian Sanders, Board Chair, on behalf of the Board of Directors of the Central Okanagan Foundation
