Bringing people and resources together for 45 years.

The Flamborough Connects Board of Directors would like to announce that Amelia Steinbring will be retiring from her position as Executive Director at the end of 2022. Amelia has provided exceptional leadership to our organization over the past six years, and she will remain with us until the end of the year. While we’re pleased that she will be able to take a well-deserved break from her responsibilities and busy schedule, she will be greatly missed by the Flamborough Connects Board, volunteers, staff, clients, and the many community partners who have collaborated with her over the years. We will be celebrating Amelia’s contributions closer to her actual retirement. In the meantime, we are posting for the Executive Director position and we want to thank Amelia for her ongoing efforts while she remains with Flamborough Connects. Sincerely, Donna Czukar Volunteer Board Chair
