After less than five months on the job, the new executive director of Our Place Society is packing her bags.
Sandra Danco left her a job in Edmonton to take the position left by Rev. Al Tysick, on July 4.
“I just found a better opportunity,” Danco explained.
Her last day was Nov. 25, after which she was set to leave B.C. to take on a position she said is more in line with her career goals.
Society board chair, Shannon Renault, said it’s a “bit of a disappointment.”
With Christmas approaching, “we’re at a hugely busy time of year,” she added.
The board will soon begin a search for an interim director next week to provide leadership during the transition until a permanent replacement is found.
