Our Place on the hunt for new executive director

Sandra Danco moves on to greener pastures after five months

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.
