We regret to announce that Jenny Scott-Thompson will be resigning from the OTW Board effective at the end of December, which coincides with our organization’s term break. We are deeply saddened to lose her as a board member, but Jenny will be continuing on in her other roles within the OTW as a staffer on the Finance Committee and as part of the Strategic Planning workgroup. She will also finish her term as Elections Officer, which ends at the end of December as well.
This resignation was due to personal reasons relating to increasing demand from her day job, which is leaving her with insufficient time for the various tasks of her role on board. Due to these constraints she doesn’t feel that she will be able to perform her duties as an OTW Board member as well as needed, and she would prefer to step down and offer the opportunity to another OTW staff member that is better able to serve the org at this time.
Jenny’s resignation has an effect on our upcoming election as this will leave us with 3 seats instead of 2 open for candidates and it will also get our board seats back onto a proper cycle sooner than expected.
Jenny has been very active in her duties this term and we regret that we will be losing her energy and commitment to the OTW in a board role. Thank you, Jenny, for the work that you have done so far and we are glad that we will still be getting your input and time in other roles.
