Following an extensive search, I am pleased to announce that the Board of Directors has appointed Heather Norris as the new President and CEO of the Ottawa Network for Education. Heather is leaving her current position as CEO of Northumberland United Way to return to her hometown of Ottawa and will join ONFE April 1st.
With 20 years of experience in the healthcare and non-profit sectors, Heather brings expertise in operations management, fundraising, government relations, human resources and volunteer management, board governance and public speaking to this role. She holds a Master of Philanthropy and Non-profit Leadership Degree from Carleton University.
Heather’s high energy and experience working with leaders across the public, private and non-profit sectors will be a welcome addition to ONFE. Heather looks forward to building on the incredible foundation in place at the Ottawa Network for Education and leading the organization to future success.
Kathy McKinlay retires from ONFE on March 31st to spend more time with her family and friends, to travel, and to pursue other volunteer and work interests. We wish her continued health, happiness and adventure in this next phase of her life.
Chair, Board of Directors
