Aspire Special Needs Resource Centre looking for new leader

Aspire Special Needs Resouce Centre is looking for a new leader.

In December, executive director Michelle Sluchinski announced her resignation and will leave June 26.

After almost eight years of heading the organization, Sluchinski says this is the right time for transition and renewal.

“Aspire is in a financially strong, forward-looking position, focused on the mission of providing hope to children with special needs, the families who love them, and the communities who care for them.

“The board of directors intends to release a new year 2020-2025 strategic plan next month, and leadership renewal will advance the goals and strategies.”

The chair of the board of directors, Robin Armitage, says, “We have tremendous community support, a strong board, an exceptional staff team with well informed, caring individuals who have the very best for Aspire, the children and our community in their hearts, and for that I am ever grateful.”

The board of directors has formed a search committe that Sluchinski will support and work alongside.
