Emily Goodman will be stepping down as executive director of the Fort St. John Women's Resource Society in May.

The Fort St. John Women’s Resource Society will be looking for a new executive director.

The Society board of directors announced it accepted outgoing executive director Emily Goodman’s resignation Thursday. Goodman’s last day will be May 15, 2013.

“After four stimulating and inspiring years as the executive director of the Women's Resource Centre, it is with a heavy but full heart that I announce my departure from FSJ,” Goodman said. “With all of the great energy surrounding it, I know that the Women's Centre will continue to grow and thrive for many years to come.”

The board of directors has formed a hiring committee and is searching for Goodman’s replacement.

“The board wants to thank Emily for her service and to wish her well in her future endeavours,” said board chair Sherry Marshall. “We also look forward to continuing the Society’s long tradition of supporting our community,” Sherry said. “The Women’s Resource Society is a strong and energetic organization, and we know well the valued contribution it makes to the community of Fort St John.”

The Fort St. John Women’s Resource Society website states its mission is to promote equality and well-being of local women through “education, advocacy and social justice.” It also provides transitional housing to women fleeing abuse, plus legal advocacy and outreach to those in need.
