It is with mixed emotions that I announce my resignation as Executive Director for TriCounty Community Network (TCN) to pursue another opportunity.  My last day will be July 17th

It has been an honor leading TCN these last five years.  I am most proud of our completion of a comprehensive strategic plan which resulted in a new direction, mission and vision for the organization and led to successful new initiatives and increased engagement.  TCN is now seen as a model for effective community collaboration.       

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Board of Directors for their guidance and leadership.  The Board’s volunteer service has been invaluable to the growth and development of the organization and I am grateful for their support. 

I would also like to thank the staff, contractors, advisors, and committee chairs for their dedication and hard work.  Their outstanding teamwork has been vital to TCN’s success.         

Special thanks to our members and volunteers.  I have been inspired by your engagement and level of commitment to the organization and the community.  Your collaborative efforts have brought important and much needed projects and events to the tri-county area. 

My sincerest thanks to all partners, funders, sponsors, and donors for supporting the mission of TCN.  I would like to recognize the Pottstown Area Health & Wellness Foundation for their generous financial support and for being such a valuable community partner.

We will work quickly to select a leader who will best exemplify the vision and mission of a true community collaborative. It is our expectation to have this person named by August 1st and in place for the start of the programming year in September.  In the interim, we are grateful to Jan Morris for her willingness to step in and serve as Interim Executive Director until we hire a replacement. Jan’s wealth of knowledge in the history of the organization, plus her connections in the community, will serve us well in the coming weeks. 

We thank each organization in the TCN community for their support and commitment to Greater Pottstown.  We strive to exemplify the best practices of a community collaborative and value the input of our membership and stakeholders as part of that process.  Please contact me directly at tthunstrom@pennlibertybank.com or by phone (610.535.4881) if there is anything that you feel we should know that can help us better meet the mission and vision of TCN in the coming years. The board believes that its membership is the keystone to TCN’s success and a true part of helping this community achieve great results. We look forward to your continued support and commitment to the organization under the leadership of Jen’s successor.
