A Letter from our Interim Executive Director

To Whom It May Concern,

I am writing this letter to inform the Westside Regional Center Community that effective this week, I have formally assumed the role as Interim Executive Director and will also maintain my current position as the Director of Clinical Services.  I plan to remain in the interim position until a permanent Executive Director is hired. 

I know that many of you are already aware that I was asked to fill this role, however, up to this point Carmine Manicone, the exiting Executive Director, and I have been collaborating in this capacity.  Carmine has been invaluable in assisting me in this difficult transition.  He is no longer available on site but will continue to assist me remotely in a consultation role. 

I know this is a difficult time and yet another transition for us here at Westside Regional Center.  However, I also know that we are a strong and resilient agency and community.  I ask for everyone’s continued support and also your input as I formally assume this role.

I have asked for an email to be set up, feedback@westsiderc.org where everyone can write me specifically with their concerns and thoughts.  I have a big pair of shoes to fill and will need the help and support of everyone. Thanks in advance for your understanding.
