Position announcement to pair with our April 9th letter — Alison is departing

Each person on our mailing list received this letter on April 9, 2020. We now have an important addendum to share: the official job announcement. The hiring committee will review applications on a rolling basis until the position is filled.

Dear PA IPL friends and supporters,

As the global pandemic invites us all to focus our priorities, make unanticipated changes, and answer to our best angels, Pennsylvania Interfaith Power & Light remains committed to our mission while anticipating some big changes in our organization in the coming months.

This summer we will be saying goodbye to our talented and dedicated executive director, Alison Cornish, who is moving from Pennsylvania to be closer to family.

Alison has held this part-time position with PA IPL since 2015. She has led us in fostering effective conversation that crosses difference on climate change, promoting understanding, and inspiring collective action. In the past five years she has worked tirelessly to increase our base, strengthen congregational members, support chapters, and help steer the organization through a major strategic planning process. Her compassion, organizational savvy and pastoral skill have been a blessing and a gift to all who have worked with her on climate issues.

We will miss her immensely.

In these challenging months to come, the PA IPL staff and Board of Directors will continue to focus on tending to and strengthening the diverse relationships necessary to address climate change as a moral issue.  We look forward to further conversations with you as we focus on how best to apply the talents and resources of PA IPL to the challenge of the climate crisis in the current environment.
