As you may know, in early winter of last year our former executive director resigned. The board of directors named our Deputy Director, Yi-Chin Chen as the Interim Executive Director, while we conducted a search for a new leader. The search process lasted five months and included the consideration of several candidates, including Yi-Chin, who was the board’s selected candidate. As often happens with leadership changes, the process provided the opportunity to have deep discussions about HSTF, the new executive director role, and hopes for the future. After these discussions, the board and Yi-Chin decided together that this is a good time for her to move on to new opportunities and the next phase of her professional career.
