Vantage Point is pleased to introduce Lynn Moran as interim Executive Director while a search begins for a new, permanent Executive Director. Lynn has more than 30 years of experience in the not-for-profit sector in BC, Canada and internationally, leading organizational growth. She previously led the Community Action Initiative with Canadian Mental Health Association – BC, AMSSA, and Crossroads International. Over the next three to four months, Lynn will be focusing on supporting Vantage Point staff who continue to deliver programs and lead projects to lift the not-for-profit sector in BC.
The Vantage Point Board worked with Wayne Robert, a Third Sector Company affiliate, to recruit Lynn in this interim position. Wayne and Third Sector Company have established a methodology that takes the opportunity to use the interim period to prepare an organization for new, stable leadership. Wayne will continue to be a Senior Advisor in the process and has done so for six other organizations in the past five years, which includes working with Lynn in a previous placement. Vantage Point would recommend Wayne to members who are looking for interim help and he can be reached at email@example.com.
Our vision continues to be for a thriving not-for-profit sector where organizations mindfully engage talented people and draw on a spirit of abundance to achieve their missions. As our members know, Vantage Point is known for providing both quality education through its Knowledge Philanthropists, and for evolving with the sector to respond to the needs of our members.
As we prepare for a post-pandemic reality, Vantage Point remains committed to a thoughtful and strategic approach to building the capacity of not-for-profits through education and consulting, and initiatives to foster a stronger partnership with government to invest in the sector.
Lynn is aware that this is a priority for both staff and members. There are several options being explored to help ensure attention and energy goes into the Sector Development work in a thoughtful manner. While Lynn will focus primarily on Vantage Point’s interim processes, working closely with the Board, her years of experience will undoubtedly help to build the foundation for a new Executive Director to lead Vantage Point with a long-term vision for a thriving not-for-profit community.
The Vantage Point team extends our gratitude to the Board for their dedication and tireless efforts throughout this process, to Harbour West for their advisory support, and leading the search for a permanent Executive Director; as well as to Wayne Robert, a Third Sector Company affiliate, for identifying Lynn as interim Executive Director, and of course, to Lynn Moran for joining the team in this time of transition
