It is with mixed emotions that the Board of Directors announces Linda Stewart’s retirement as Executive Director of the Association of Local Public Health Agencies, effective November 4, 2017. Since 2005, Linda has played a critical role in the development and success of the organization. Her strategic leadership has positioned the Association well for the future. Linda’s more than 12 years with alPHa marks the end of a 30 year career in the Ontario health sector and we ask you to join us in wishing her well as she completes her role with alPHa and prepares for an exciting future. We cannot thank Linda enough for the dedication, passion, enthusiasm and motivation she has given alPHa over the past 12 years. She will be greatly missed by the staff, Board, members and partners alike.
Looking ahead, alPHa’s Board has established a search committee that will be conducting a process over the next few months to find alPHa’s next Executive Director. The job posting will be released in the coming weeks and our priority is to identify Linda’s successor before she leaves. The search committee members are Dr. Valerie Jaeger, President; Carmen McGregor, Vice-President; Pat Hewitt, Association of Ontario Public Health Business Administrators’ Representative; and Linda Stewart, Executive Director.
Our thanks once again to Linda for changing the face of alPHa and our best wishes for whatever lies around the next bend. If you have any questions or concerns during this transition process, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
