Jane's Jottings - a Chair's Update
by Jane Leonard

The CDS Board gathered last week for our first meeting in 2020. I can't believe it's 2020! We continue work on securing the next phase of transition to an organization shepherded by a full-time Executive Director. While we are in pretty good shape financially, we do not yet have the membership numbers and revenue to support a FT position, so we will continue with part-time staff for the foreseeable future.

The Board also set in motion a transition plan to secure new editors for the Community Development journal as the current arrangements end this July. Big thanks go to John Sipple at Cornell University, USA & Leanne M. Avery at State University of New York at Oneonta, USA, for their long service as our current editors!

What else is Jane excited about? How can you step up to help CDS?
