As the year comes to a close, we acknowledge the immense contributions of three departing Board members who complete their terms in December (see page 6 in the Newsletter). Three new members will join the Board in January, led by our exceptional incoming Board Chair Deborah Bayle, former President and CEO of United Way of Salt Lake (UT).
2022 is going to be a significant time of change for us. With our beloved CEO's departure, Amber is leaving big shoes to fill. We're beginning the year with a soon-to-be named Interim CEO and kicking off a Search Committee for our next CEO. And we are most excited about our branding position that we'll be rolling out in the first quarter.
2022 will also be a time to meet us in Louisville for our Annual Gathering. Please mark your calendar for September 27-October 1. It will be a great time to reconnect. In the meantime, catch up on what’s happening around the network (pages 4 & 5), learn more about your fellow UWRA members (pages 7 & 8), sign up for one of our upcoming events (page 9), and honor the memories of former colleagues who have passed (page 10). Our best wishes go to you and your family for a joyous holiday season. We are thankful to have you as part of our organization. Your connection is important to us, so stay in touch during the new year!
