On behalf of the Board of Directors of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Regina and Area (“BBBS”), I am writing to inform you that Victor Roman, the Executive Director of our organization, has tendered his resignation effective August 15, 2020. He will transition into his new role and will remain on a part-time basis until August 31, 2020.
Victor first became involved in our organization as a Big Brother in the in-school mentoring program. Through this role, he gained an appreciation and understanding of BBBS which allowed him to step into the Executive Director position with ease. Since starting in January 2019, Victor lead BBBS with poise and perseverance as our organization went through some pivotal changes. During his short amount of time at our organization, Victor demonstrated his commitment to community-based mentorship programs for youth in Regina, Weyburn, and Moose Jaw.
Through Victor’s leadership, we have fostered a positive working relationship with the YWCA that will allow us to provide more opportunities to the youth of Regina. He led the BBBS through the roll-out of our re-brand as provided by National and integrated our refreshed focus into our 5-year Strategic Plan. Victor has also worked tirelessly over the last four months to secure funding and adapt our programming to align with the unforeseen restrictions put in place by the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to his ongoing dedication to seek funding and grant opportunities, our Board is confident that we are in a positive position to continue to serve to youth through our programming. With Victors efforts, we have strengthened and enhanced many of our internal processes and external relationships to ensure that our organization is providing the best services possible and that we are in a position of stability during these unknown times.
As our Board of Directors prepare to search for a new Executive Director, we are excited to have conversations with the staff along with stakeholders and our community partners to discuss the future leadership and direction of our organization. We welcome your input in this process and look forward to the discussions to come.
Please join me in congratulating Victor in his commitment to our organization and to thank him for his dedication to enabling mentoring relationships in our communities.
If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me directly.
Chair, Board of Directors
