Megan Nordvedt, the longtime executive director of the Community Center of La Cañada Flintridge, has been asked to step down, the center’s board announced Wednesday.
Tom Reynolds, chairman of the center’s board of directors, said that the decision was born out of an 18-month evaluation by the consulting Center for Nonprofit Management, and a need for the center to focus on raising money to upgrade its facilities.
“We’ve been working really hard figuring out what to do. We’ve got an aging facility, we’re facing some sort of capital campaign of some sort, or negotiation with government bodies to see if we can get an environment that’s good for a community center,” Reynolds said.
As a result of that, “the Board has decided to make a change in the Executive Director position to better suit the newly defined goals and long-term strategic direction for the Center,” a press release said. “The job has been posted and the final details of the hiring process are being worked out.”
