Central Alberta’s Aspire Special Needs Resource Centre leadership transition

Michelle Sluchinski, executive director, is leaving effective June 26th

In December 2019, Michelle Sluchinski, executive director of Aspire Special Needs Resource Centre (Aspire) announced her resignation and will depart as leader, effective June 26th.

After almost eight years leading the organization, she recognized that this is the right time for transition and renewal.

“Aspire is in a financially strong, forward-looking position, focused on the mission of providing hope to children with special needs, the families who love them, and the communities who care for them,” she said.

”The Board of Directors intends to release a new year 2020-2025 Strategic Plan next month, and leadership renewal will advance the goals and strategies.”

Chair of the Board of Directors Robin Armitage says, “We have tremendous community support, a strong board, an exceptional staff team with well informed, caring individuals who have the very best for Aspire, the children and our community in their hearts, and for that I am ever grateful!”

“On behalf of the Board of Directors, we wish Michelle all the very best in her future opportunities and appreciate immensely all she has accomplished at Aspire. I know that with Michelle’s guidance this transition will place Aspire in good stead for continued growth and accomplishment.

“I look forward to collaborating with the community to find the person who will continue to lead the organization in advancing our vision of working together to discover potential.”

The board has formed a search committee which Sluchinski will support and work alongside to support the transition process.
