I have some news – after a wonderful experience directing Binners’ Project and its team, I have decided to move on and have accepted another position.
In the interim, while our Steering Committee embarks on a search for a new, permanent Director, long-time Binners’ Project staff, Brianne De Man will be stepping in as Interim Director.
Brianne has been with Binners’ Project for 4 years, joining the team in an operations position in early 2017. She’s been managing communications, fundraising, finance, and strategy for the past 2 years and holds a great amount of institutional knowledge and insight on how to continue putting binners first in our programs and advocacy efforts. I have confidence that the Project will be in excellent hands.
We’ll share more information soon once the new posting is live - so stay tuned for that.
It’s always a tough decision to leave colleagues and work that I hold so dear, and it’s been an incredibly humbling experience to continue working in the Downtown Eastside, a community I cherish. However, I have so much faith in the team of binners we have and the core staff who support them and am excited to see what the next chapter of Binners’ Project brings. I will continue to be a diehard supporter of this work, as I know you are as well.
All the best,
All our latest news, events, announcements and press releases will be posted here.
