Staff changes at volunteer centre

The Volunteer Centre of Guelph/Wellington has announced a few changes on its staff.
“We’re realigning our staffing model to focus on our strengths, key programs and services to connect individuals and agencies with the information they need to engage in our community in meaningful ways,” Barb Smith, the centre’s board chair, said in a news release.
At the top of the list of changes, the centre will be getting a new executive director.
Tania Framst, who took on the role last February on an interim basis and on secondment from the University of Guelph, is leaving the centre to take a senior leadership role with the Lucky Iron Fish Project, the release said. Framst, who finished up as executive director on Nov. 29, will continue to stay connected with the centre as a member of its marketing committee.
Assistant executive director Christine Oldfield is taking over as executive director.
“Christine has an excellent staff team and an attentive and experienced board to support her leadership and achieve VCGW’s vision that everyone engages in building a vibrant, healthy, resilient community,” Framst said in the release.
Other changes include Snow Angels co-ordinator Emily Vincent stepping in to support the Best Practices in Volunteer Screening program, and the departure of the centre’s longtime administrator.
And as one final piece of the strategic staffing realignment, the centre will be recruiting a part-time business officer in the coming months.
