Our Place on the hunt for new leader again

Sandra Danco leaving after serving less than five months as executive director

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 is Nov. 25, when she takes a new position out of province, which, she says 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 start a search of an interim director next week to provide leadership during the transition until a permanent replacement is found.
