I am pleased to inform you that we have an executed employment contract with Chad Houser effective today, 9/1/2012, as Executive Director.
Please join me in welcoming Chad as our founding Executive Director of Cafe Momentum. In the past year+ we have made much progress with Cafe Momentum. Now, I am pleased to have Chad in a place where we can make even more significant progress. Our many donors/supporters will enjoy hearing this important news, but more importantly it brings security to those who support us financially, showing we have diligently selected the best person for this key leadership role. Chad possesses the exact mix of professionalism, talent, skills, and passion, to get the organization through the start-up phase and building a foundation that will carry the organization for many years to come. The fact that Chad is one of the Founders, along with Janice Provost who serves on the Board will also carry much respect in philanthropic circle -- we are very fortunate to have both Chad and Janice as visionaries of our mission.
Chad, as a Board, we are here to enable success of the organization, and for you personally. This is a working board, so please continue to engage us as much as needed to insure success in each of these aspects.
Thank you very much Chad and thank you to the board members who worked through the employment legal and operational negotiations.
Onward and upward...
