After 12 years of service, Executive Director Lynn Templeton will retire effective December 31, 2017. “Lynn has overseen many accomplishments for The Center including doubling the budget, strengthening infrastructure and growing the number of volunteers serving,” said Charles Crutchfield, Chairman of The Center’s Board of Directors.
Lynn said one of her most important accomplishments was being awarded the GSK Community Impact Award in 2013 for the work The Center does to create healthy communities. “It was a turning point in our ability to leverage some other funding and awareness of The Center,” said Lynn. “We’ve doubled our budget, and we need to double it again.”
In recognition of Lynn’s accomplishments during her time at The Center, three feature articles were recently published:
- Cary Living Feature: The Interview with Lynn Templeton (September 2017)
- Tar Heel of the Week: Lynn Templeton helps the elderly and others remain independent (April 2017)
- Triangle Business Journal: Center Works to Boost Volunteer Caregiving (January 2017)
Lynn will continue in her role during the search process and until a new Executive Director is in place. ”A celebration of Lynn’s leadership and impact on the community is being planned for December,” said Mr. Crutchfield.
Search Begins for The Center for Volunteer Caregiving’s New Executive Director
A search committee led by Mr. Crutchfield will identify the next executive leader. The Center has retained Armstrong McGuire & Associates of Raleigh to execute the search in partnership with the Board. This project has been made possible with a grant from the Triangle Community Foundation’s Capacity Building Partnerships Program for Community Development
The Center Receives Capacity Building Grant
The Triangle Community Foundation is investing in The Center’s operations through a Capacity Building Partnerships Program for Community Development. The program includes three components: assessment grants, capacity building project funding, and the learning cohort.
The $15,000 grant will be used to operate a well-organized and professional search process to hire the best candidate possible as Executive Director, ensuring the mission and vision continuity for the good of the people The Center serves, minimizing any lapse in service.
