Board of Directors Announcement of Executive Director Resignation

From Michael Chinigo, Board President, South Louisville Community Ministries

It is with a mix of sadness and gratitude that the Board of Directors announces Yvette Livers' departure as Executive Director of South Louisville Community Ministries (SLCM), which was effective June 12, 2018. Since joining in September 2014, Yvette played a critical role in the development and success of the organization. While we will miss her and her inspiring leadership, we wish her the best of luck in her new endeavor as the Executive Director of Neighborhood House in Portland. We want to thank her for the 4 years of dedicated service which involved many significant accomplishments, including:

·       SLCM experienced significant growth in signature fundraising events during her tenure

·        Was instrumental in improving policies and procedures of the organization and charting strategic objectives for SLCM

·        Ensured that the organization efficiently and effectively devoted resources to fulfill its mission

·        Coordinated with board to develop a new organizational structure and assisted in establishing board committees

Over the past few months, we have been conducting a search to find the new SLCM Executive Director. During this transition period, it has been our priority to find the best individual to lead, while still maintaining a stable and effective organization. We will be sharing the job announcement soon.

Again, we cannot thank Yvette enough for the dedication, passion, enthusiasm and motivation she has given SLCM over the past 4 years. She will be greatly missed by the staff, Board, members and partners alike. We look forward to following the success of her career and are hopeful and excited for the next chapter of SLCM as we continue to empower our neighbors in crisis to move towards stability and self-sufficiency.
