Eastside Baby Corner searches for next leader
September 25, 2012
Eastside Baby Corner is on the hunt for a leader after founder and volunteer Executive Director Karen Ridlon announced plans to step back from the role.
The nonprofit organization is working with Issaquah-based recruiting firm Prothman Co. to find Ridlon’s successor. The firm spearheaded searches for Issaquah’s city administrator and the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank’s executive director.
Eastside Baby Corner collects community donations, and purchases and distributes children’s and maternity items to families in need.
The application period is open until Oct. 21. The next executive director is expected to earn between $70,000 and $85,000 annually, according to the job description.
Ridlon served as the volunteer executive director at the Issaquah-based organization for 22 years and plans to remain involved at Eastside Baby Corner in other capacities.
