Habitat board begins new term
Board elects Susan Riley as president
On January 5, 2011, the new executive team for Evergreen Habitat for Humanity's board of directors assumed their roles. Susan Riley was selected as this year's EHFH Board President.
Susan works as an interior designer at DeWils Interiors and plans to bring her attention to detail and emphasis on communication to her new position.
Susan understands that the upcoming year will bring some changes to Evergreen Habitat for Humanity. Still, she believes that it is important to focus on Habitat's ongoing mission of working in partnership with low-income Clark County residents to provide "a hand up, not a hand out."
Susan believes, "An organization is like a dinner party; you can put a new tablecloth on the table, you can have new china and you can serve up some new dishes with fresh ingredients but don't forget why you gathered."
Susan has served on the board of Evergreen Habitat for Humanity for two years. In addition to her work with Habitat's executive and church relations committees, Susan was last year's Board Secretary.
Evergreen Habitat would also like to officially welcome Board Vice President, Justin Myers and Treasurer, Brad Eriksen and Secretary Linda Reid to Evergreen Habitat's 2011 executive team.
