A word from our Executive Director
"When you're finished changing, you're finished." Ben Franklin
As we all know, change is constant and Nanaimo Hospice is not immune. Last week I submitted my resignation to the Board of Directors. It was my intention when accepting the position at Nanaimo Hospice to stay with the organization until retirement, however, another opportunity has been offered to me. After careful consideration I recognized that accepting this new position would be the best decision for my family and me at this time. My last day of work will be October 21st. The Board is taking immediate action to fill the position and in the interim, Jeanne Fahlman will be taking on the role as Acting Executive Director. It has been a privilege to work with such amazing staff and volunteers who are the heart of Nanaimo Community Hospice Society. I want to thank the staff, members and community for their support and guidance over the past eighteen months. I have learned so much and will always remain a friend of Nanaimo Community Hospice.
With heartfelt thanks Karyn French, Executive Director
