Leadership Changes at L'Arche Tahoma Hope

 

 

 

Stacy Cates-CarneyChange is a constant presence at L'Arche. Seasons and celebrations come and go; assistants arrive and depart; core members are welcomed and sometimes are bid goodbye as well. Throughout, the mission and spirit of L'Arche stay strong,and the community remains centered on mutual relationships and trust in God.

After 12 years as Community Leader, Stacy Cates-Carney has decided to transition out of the role effective June, 2015. We are so grateful for Stacy's leadership over these past 12 years. She has been a steady and uncompromising presence with a deep love for the community. When she came into the Community Leader role,the organization faced some significant challenges. She will leave us on strong financial ground, with an excellent regulatory record, solid policies and procedures in place, and a culture of inclusion and celebration that ensures the L'Arche flame will continue to burn brightly in Tacoma.

We have just completed our mandate for 2015 - 2020 and are now in the midst of a focused search process to identify a new Community Leader by May. The Board intends to have at least a month of overlap with a new leader in place before Stacy steps down. Along the way we will find a variety of times and places in which to honor Stacy's leadership and to bid her farewell. We know that it won't be easy to find someone to step into Stacy's shoes. We intend to cast the net widely, so we ask that you think about people you know and steer them in our direction if they are interested. Finally, we let you know so that you might keep L'Arche in your thoughts and prayers during this time of transition.

 

To apply, please submit a cover letter and resume / c.v. by email no later than March 5, 2015 to the Search Team.

 

If you have questions about the position or the search process, please email the Search Team.

Application Closing Date: March 5th, 2015
