“It is bittersweet for me to be leaving the CVCDA”, said Joanne Schroeder. “My time in this role has allowed me to be part of a thriving and generous community of children, families, staff and volunteers. It has been a wonderful experience. I am particularly proud of the completion of the new Comox Valley Autism Centre, and the expansion and introduction of several programs. The CVCDA has always played a leadership role in the community and I have appreciated the chance to continue this tradition through my participation in the Early Years Collaborative, the Local Action team, the Local Hero initiative, and the Social Planning Committee. It is through these partnerships that we most effectively leverage meaningful action for our children and families.”Read More
