It is with profound sadness that I announce that one of BCODN’s past Board members and member at large has passed away following an amazingly courageous fight with cancer. Doreen Jacklin passed away on May 13th, 2016.
Doreen joined the Board in 2013 and was a member since 2010. In her tenure on the Board, she co-chaired professional development and also served as Treasurer. While she was on the Board she helped clarify job descriptions and created process flows for each Board role. She also helped broker the strategic partnership we have with Adler University.
Much more than that, Doreen was a positive force in life and for the BCODN. Anyone who met her remembers the warm and genuine welcome they felt when being greeted by her. She had a passion for living and learning, and an infectious laugh that was unquenchable. Her last corporate job was with ICBC, but she also taught, and started her own business focused on heart centered leadership development from the inside out.
Doreen will be greatly missed. Our thoughts go out to her husband Ron and her family.
Out of respect for Doreen's memorial, the previously scheduled session this Wednesday will be moved to May 25th. It will be a session on organizational culture -- something Doreen would have definitely wanted to attend.
