YAC Blog welcomes Call to Action’s New Director!
Posted by yacblogteam on July 3, 2009
Call to Action announced today that the board has chosen a new director, Jim FitzGerald. Jim has served on the Call to Action board and is the coordinator for Next Gen Faith Sharing CommUnions in the Boston area. (See the official announcement about Jim’s background below.) It is so exciting to have a member of our own young adult community assuming leadership!
The YAC Blog Team congratulates Jim on his new position and offers prayers of hope for his and Call to Action’s success and growth.
At this exciting time of transition, what are your hopes for the future of Call to Action, of the church reform movement, and for young adults within these movements for justice?
(This announcement was sent to members of Call to Action today.)
The Board of Directors is very pleased to announce the selection of Call To Action’s new Director. After an extensive search process was completed and multiple talented candidates were interviewed, we are delighted to introduce to you to Call To Action’s new Director, Jim FitzGerald.
Jim comes to us with a strong background in both non-profit administration and theological preparedness. He holds a Master’s in Educational Psychology from the College of Saint Rose in Albany, NY and a Master’s in Theology and Ethics from Hartford Seminary in Connecticut. Jim brings to Call To Action seven years experience at the senior level in organizational management including strategic planning, fundraising, public relations and financial administration.
Many may recognize Jim from his dedicated years of service as a Call To Action board member, chapter leader and NextGeneration local facilitator. Call To Action is fortunate at this critical time in our country and church’s history to have someone with such a diversity and depth of expertise, in addition to a deep dedication to the mission of our organization.
Jim will join the staff from his home office in Massachusetts starting on August 1st and looks forward to greeting Call To Action members personally at the conference in November and during his travels to local CTA chapters and events.
We are deeply grateful for Pat O’Connell’s leadership as Transitional Director since the departure of Call To Action’s founders, Dan and Sheila Daley. Pat will be working with Jim, the staff and board to ensure a strong and successful transition to this exciting new phase of our work. Please join Pat and all of us in welcoming Jim FitzGerald as Director of Call To Action!
