FY 23

March 2023

  • ED Transition: Lara starts on Monday, March 6! By now everyone will have been scheduled for individual meetings with Lara to meet and check-in with her. It will be an opportunity to share some highlights about your work as she gets to know you and your role in the organization. 
  • Thank You’s: I, Liliana, thank you all for your incredible work maintaining and growing the services over the past year while we searched for a new ED. I appreciate all of your support and thought partnership as I navigated the role of interim ED.
  • Staff Gathering: At the last staff meeting, those attending filled out a survey to provide input on the staff gathering discussion and activities. If you have not had a chance to do so, you can do so USING THIS LINK TO THE SURVEY

  • NYIC VISTA: Internationals applied to the New York Immigration Coalition to bring on a one-year VISTA (AmeriCorps Volunteer in Service to America) to provide support on resource development on the program team. If approved to bring on the VISTA, the VISTA would start in August/September 2023 and work with us for 12 months.
