Announcement from Becky
Dear generous & caring community,
Over the last 31 years I have been proud to be part of an organization that has become such a vital community resource for more than 35,000 people each year. The Goodman Community Center is a thriving eco-system made up of talented and dedicated staff, participants of all ages and a vibrant community of supporters.
It is with the full confidence in this eco-system that I am stepping down as the Executive Director at the end of 2020 to pursue a new opportunity.
I also believe that even in the midst of this pandemic, the Goodman Community Center is in a good spot to transition to new leadership. My transition was planned before the onset of the coronavirus, but I delayed this announcement so I could provide leadership and stability for the Center and the community through this unsettling time. Although it is a challenging time, beginning this transition now is critical in order to find the best possible successor to lead this amazing organization.
Our board and leadership team have a succession plan and have been working with me to ensure continuity of the quality programs you’ve come to expect from Goodman — while we find, hire and introduce you to the next executive director who will lead Goodman into the future. I will still be in the neighborhood, and will continue to support Goodman and the new leadership team in 2021 and beyond. After all, there is little in my life that I care more about than the wellbeing of this organization.
It has been such a privilege to lead at Goodman for the past 31 years. I will profoundly miss our incredible staff and volunteers, and the community (you!) who has enabled us to become not just bigger, but more effective at strengthening lives and securing futures.
I will stay in touch with you as the transition process unfolds, but please feel free to reach out to me. I always love to talk with you.
Executive Director at Goodman Community Center
