Dear <<First Name>>,
I hope this email finds you well and safe going into the end of the year.
I am reaching out today to share that Friday, December 31st will be my last day with Young Leadership Council. I am transitioning out of my role as the Executive Director because I have decided to depart New Orleans in 2022. I have enjoyed my time at YLC both as the Executive Director and as a member, and am grateful for the board's support in my new direction.
While 2021 was another challenging year, YLC’s members, project leaders, and board of directors have demonstrated adaptive leadership by engaging with each other and community partners in new ways. YLC Assists, Power Ties, Toastmasters, and our Leadership Development Series were all active as projects this year. In addition, YLC has started a new partnership with SBP to support Hurricane Ida recovery in our region and further develop disaster resiliency solutions. I continue to be humbled and inspired by the talented, committed young professionals working to grow their leadership skills and make our city a better place for all New Orleanians.
The board of directors is well-positioned to lead the organization in the months ahead and has already begun the executive search. If you or someone you know is interested in the position, you can learn more and apply here.
Thank you for your commitment to YLC and to New Orleans.
