Robert Majkut, President of Community Living~Fort Erie and Mark Guilbeault, President of Community Living Port Colborne-Wainfleet announced today that the two organizations have come to an agreement for Shared Executive Director Services. This agreement takes effect on July 1st, 2017 and comes after more than three years of dialogue and planning by the two Board of Directors.
Community Living~Fort Erie also announced today the planned retirement of their Executive Director Maureen Brown on June 30th, 2017. Mrs. Brown has served as Executive Director for Community Living~Fort Erie for the past 14 years.
Succeeding Mrs. Brown and serving as Executive Director for Both Associations will be Vickie Moreland. Mrs. Moreland has served as Executive Director Community Living Port Colborne-Wainfleet for the past 28 years.
Both Presidents note that there are no plans for the amalgamation of the two organizations.

The Boards key motivation is to enhance the quality of service delivery and administration functions through collaborative utilization of available human and financial resources.
We look forward to the possibilities that this new partnership will inspire.
