Thanks to so many of you for your warm welcome and encouragement as I move into the role of interim CEO at Philanthropy Northwest. Our talented staff and thoughtful board continue to be wonderful partners, enabling me to fulfill my commitments to The Giving Practice while taking on additional leadership responsibilities for our learning network.
Philanthropy Northwest's 2016 conference theme, Under One Sky, reminds us that from Alaska to Wyoming, from urban to rural, we remain connected by a greater purpose: our shared commitment to advancing philanthropy to support vibrant, equitable and inclusive communities.
As interim CEO, I am also guided by you, our members, and I look forward to working with you during our 40th anniversary year. Our team, myself included, welcomes your participation and feedback along the way.
Audrey Haberman is interim CEO of Philanthropy Northwest and managing partner of The Giving Practice, our consulting team. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
