Nonprofit seeks new executive director
January 14, 2014
Eastside Friends of Seniors has begun the search for a new administrator to lead the nonprofit organization that was founded in 1997 to provide assistance to older residents of the community to maintain their independence.
The board posted the vacancy on its website after accepting the resignation of Executive Director Claire Petersky, who has guided the growth and fundraising activities for the nonprofit group for the past five years.
Petersky headed the expansion of services the organization provides to seniors in Sammamish and Issaquah to the communities throughout the Snoqualmie Valley and into Bellevue. She also coordinated the group’s name change from Faith in Action to Eastside Friends of Seniors to better describe the organization’s mission.
Petersky was honored with a Community Choice Award in 2011 for recruiting and training more than 100 volunteers to serve the needs of more than 900 seniors who utilize the services of the organization every year.
Petersky has agreed to remain at her post until a new director is hired and trained to replace her. Read the job description at http://eastsidefriendsofseniors.org/about/careers. Résumés and cover letters will be accepted until Jan. 21 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
