Board will accept applications for ED position through June 11
Dave Hesse, chief financial officer and human resources director for Resource Center Dallas for more than 15 years, has been named to serve as RCD’s interim executive director, RCD officials announced Thursday, May 27.
Hesse will fill the position being left vacant by the resignation of Mike McKay, RCD’s executive director for the last four years who is leaving the organization, effective Friday, May 28, to work for The Peace Corps.
The executive committee of the RCD board tapped Hesse as interim executive director, effective Saturday, May 29. The board will accept resumes from applicants interested in the executive director position through 5 p.m. on Friday, June 11. The new executive director, who will lead a staff of nearly 50 employees and oversee the Center’s HIV/health services and LGBT community programs, is expected to be in place by the end of the summer, RCD officials said.
RCD officials also announced this week that the center was notified Tuesday, May 25, that RCD’s United Way allocations have again increased for the 2010-2011 fiscal year, going up by $85,815 compared to last year’s allocation of $176,803.
RCD’s total allocation for 2010-2011 is $262,618, an all-time high, which will be used to fund dental and nutrition programs for people with HIV and the center’s information and referral programs.
