Seniors’ Community Services Welcomes New Executive Director Dawn Rodger
The Board of Directors of Seniors’ Community Services is pleased to announce the appointment of Dawn Rodger as the organization’s new Executive Director. Seniors’ Community Services serves North Grenville and the surrounding area and delivers community-based services and programs to enhance the independent living and quality of life of seniors, and adults with physical disabilities.
“We are exceptionally pleased that Dawn has taken on this leadership role,” said Bill Forbes, President of the Board. “Her previous experience in the nonprofit sector, coupled with her skills in community and government relations and partnership building, make her well-positioned to fill this important position. As a previous volunteer with our organization, Dawn has already demonstrated her commitment to the work we do; her knowledge of our organization will assist her greatly as she works with our staff and volunteers to further strengthen and enhance our programs and services.”
Ms. Rodger comes to the position with extensive senior management experience in both the public and private sectors, including almost 8 years with Beth Donovan Hospice in Kemptville as its Executive Director. More recently, her role as Director of Development and Community Relations with Olde Forge Community Resource Centre in Ottawa afforded her direct experience with an organization serving seniors, and adults with disabilities. “Dawn’s experience and skill set are extensive and also include a background in client relations, marketing and human resources”, noted Joanne Lincoln, Secretary of the Board, and a member of the three-person selection committee.
“I am grateful to be joining a dynamic team of staff and volunteers so committed to our work and the clients we serve,” said Ms. Rodger. “I am looking forward to the opportunity to lead Seniors’ Community Services as it continues to grow and evolve as an organization.”
