September is a month of transition for LDAA. After almost five years, Ellie Shuster will retire from her role as Executive Director of LDAA and into her sculpture studio as a full-time artist. LDAA wishes her success in this new phase of her career and is pleased to welcome Toby Rabinovitz as the incoming ED.

Toby has worked as an independent consultant in Ottawa, Calgary and Edmonton. She brings a breadth of experience in the nonprofit and public sectors, with a specialization in nonprofit management, planning and facilitation. Toby recently stepped down as Executive Director for Compass Centre for Sexual Wellness and is newly elected to the Edmonton Chamber of Voluntary Organizations (ECVO) Board. Welcome Toby!
