The Phinney Neighborhood Association (PNA) posted a job description for a new executive director today. A Facebook post from their Board President, Amanda Froh, reads:
As you may have already learned, Lee Harper, PNA’s amazing executive director for the last 9+ years, has decided to move on to new professional and personal adventures.
In Lee’s words… “I’ve been with PNA for nearly a decade and I’m so proud of where we are and so grateful for the opportunity I’ve had to lead this organization in collaboration with the board, staff, membership, and larger community. For myself, I’m ready to take a step back, relax a little bit (!), and explore the ‘what’s next’. As for that, I plan to spend the next couple of years using my skills and experience to help organizations throughout King County deepen their impact through a combination of consulting and interim leadership. Though I’m leaving as PNA’s executive director, I’ll remain a member of this community that I love.”
On behalf of the Board of Directors, I want to express our deepest thanks and admiration for Lee and her innumerable contributions to strengthening the PNA and our community.
Her last day is October 3, when she will give the keynote address at the Greenwood Senior Center’s Power of Community Breakfast. We’d love to see all of you there to support the Senior Center and send her off in style!
Two of the hallmarks of the PNA are stability and visionary leadership.
In the past 40 years, we have had only two executive directors! These are big shoes to fill, but we are excited to move forward and are up to the challenge. We have already made great progress in our search for our third leader to guide PNA into the future. We need your help in spreading the word about this opportunity!
