Kitchener, ON – March 5, 2020 – The Board of Directors at SHORE Centre announces that Executive Director Lyndsey Butcher will be stepping down. Lyndsey has been on maternity leave since April 2019 and informed the Board of her decision not to return to the position in late 2019 in order to spend more time with her family.
Lyndsey has played an important role at SHORE as both the Executive Director and a volunteer member of the Board, and we thank her for her years of service and contributions to the community. The Board and the community will have the opportunity at the Friends of SHORE Event on March 25 at Kitchener Public Library to recognize Lyndsey and wish her well. All are welcome to attend.
The Board of Directors has initiated the search process for a new Executive Director. Details are available through Optimum Talent. Alicia Langill will continue in the role of Interim Executive Director during the transition period.
We wish Lyndsey all the best as she moves onto the next chapter of her life.
