25 Feb Tiny Trees Leadership Transition
Dear Tiny Trees Community,
We are sad to inform you that Adana Protonentis has submitted her resignation, effective immediately, due to a difficult personal matter which has made it untenable for her to remain in her role as Executive Director at this time.
As with many of you, we are deeply disappointed in this outcome, but respect Adana’s decision to do what is best for her and her family. While this resignation is certainly a shock for all of us we are fortunate to have built an incredible organization and leadership team that is very capable of navigating this unfortunate turn of events.
Mari Offenbecher has returned to her prior role as interim Executive Director, and will be providing continuity and proven leadership in the near-term until we hire a permanent Executive Director. At the same time, the Board will be re-launching an expedited search process immediately to identify another high-caliber permanent leader deserving of this role.
Thank you for your continued support for Tiny Trees, and we will keep you informed and updated as we progress in the Executive Director search process. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to the Board of Directors at email@example.com, Mari Offenbecher at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Katie Weiss, our Philanthropy Manager, at email@example.com, or 206-701-0245 x 7.
The Tiny Trees Board
