To DignityUSA members:
We wanted to inform you of a change in the leadership of DignityUSA. Philippe Lachance who was elected by your Board of Directors as our treasurer beginning October 1, 2003 has had to resign his position on the board. Just as he was getting up to speed on his duties as our treasurer, his full time employment unexpectedly had changes requiring him to work many long hours. After working a ten-plus-hour day and driving home, Phil would have to start his Dignity day and this all proved too much.
We are sad to see him resign his position but are happy that he will be continuing to support our organization in other ways. We are also grateful for the generous gifts of his time, his talent and his treasure to DignityUSA.
With the resignation of Phil, we are happy to introduce our new treasurer, Joseph Giordano. Joseph is a member of Dignity/Dallas, although he currently lives in Jacksonville, Florida. He has been a member of Dignity for 15 years, having served on the Board for the New England Region and later as President of the Dallas Chapter.
"I'm glad to be able to take on this new responsibility for DignityUSA," Joseph said upon being informed of the unanimous vote of the Board of Directors.
Joseph takes over his new role effective December 8, 2003.
I know you all join me in thanking Phil for his work and wishing him well and also welcoming Joseph for taking on this new responsibility.
DignityUSA is so blessed to have such wonderful and dedicated volunteers!
All the best for a blessed Advent and Christmas.
