To our Y Family and the Community of Pictou County,

 

I am pleased to provide you with an update on the next steps regarding the search for Jim Pomeroy’s successor.  

 

Early during the week of October 29th, a recruitment advertisement will be issued for the role of Executive Director for the YMCA of Pictou County.  The Board made the decision to move forward with recruitment for an Executive Director rather than a Chief Executive Officer (CEO) in recognition that an Executive Director is more in line with the needs of our local YMCA and the needs of Pictou County.   Our strategic plan and priorities within the Pictou County community will remain the same.

 

We anticipate that the recruitment will take 2 to 3 months to complete.  Jim Cooke (our past Chair), Jodi Matlock (our Vice- Chair) and Jason Brown (Regional Y representative) join me on the search committee.  It is our desire to have a new Executive Director in place early in 2019.   We will update once we have more news to share.

 

As you know, Jim’s last day at the YMCA will be November 23, 2018.   An interim structure will be put in place on Jim’s departure until the new Executive Director arrives.   I will have more details on the interim arrangements in early November.

 

Please feel free to reach out to Jim Cooke, Jodi Matlock or myself should you have questions.

Sincerely,

 

 

Cheryl Fraser

To our Y Family and the Community of Pictou County,

 

It is with mixed emotions that I announce that Jim Pomeroy, CEO of the YMCA of Pictou County, is leaving our Y and taking on a new role as General Manager of the YMCA of Greater Halifax/Dartmouth.  This is a great role for Jim and, though we will miss his positive energy and leadership, we are confident that he will excel in Halifax.

 

Originally recruited to a one-year term, Jim brought a lot to Pictou County in his 18 months with us. Together with the Y’s dedicated staff and volunteers, Jim led our Y family on its mission to build a stronger Y and a healthier community, reflecting our Y’s values every step of the way.

 

Jim leaves his post here on November 23rd and recruitment for his successor will begin immediately.   Until then, Jim will continue with the Y’s senior leadership team and our outstanding staff members, will ensure that we follow the path that is laid out in our strategic plan.

 

Please join the board in wishing Jim all the best in his new role and be sure to visit Jim at his new facility when you are in the city!

 

Sincerely,

 

Cheryl Fraser

Chair of the Board
YMCA of Pictou County
