A Letter from the Interim Executive Director
I am honored to have been named the Interim Executive Director of The Washington Bus, an organization that has a direct impact on the issues important to young people today and for the future. I have been a nonprofit professional for over 20 years and have spent the majority of my career assisting organizations with success/strategic planning, operations, and human resource development. I look forward to doing the same for the Bus and to meeting you at one of our events or programs soon. If you would like to meet with me one-on-one, please feel free to reach out to me via email at amy[at]washingtonbus[dot]org.
