Dear CCDA Family,
I am excited about my new role as Interim President & CEO of CCDA. Bringing over 50 years of experience in Chicago-based Christian Community Development as well as national leadership on several fronts, I am ready to serve our much needed association. Joining our strong & talented staff and seasoned & dedicated board of directors, we are committed to working together in this next season.
CCDA’s National Conference in Dallas was dynamic! It boosted our spirits, affirmed our commitments as God’s people to community and justice and focused us FORWARD to the challenges of this moment. Mark your calendars for next year’s CCDA National Conference to be held in Kansas City, September 30th – October 3rd, 2020.
As we begin the search to find our next President & CEO, I ask you to join us in prayer. Our hope is to have a next generation leader in place by Spring of 2020. With God’s help, your prayers and much needed financial support, we anticipate a strong future for CCDA.
I want to make myself available to you. My email is: [email protected]. Should you wish to speak to me, I can be reached at: 773-475-7370 ext 103.
In God’s service,
Dr. Mary Nelson
Interim President and CEO
