Crina Hoyer has been appointed the new executive director for the Bellingham nonprofit RE Sources for Sustainable Communities, after serving as the organization’s interim director since February of this year.
“We all agree that Crina is the best person to move this organization into the future,” said Ken Bronstein, president of RE Sources’ board of directors, in a press release. “Her history with the organization, firsthand knowledge of local environmental issues and her strong leadership skills make her the perfect person for this job.”
Hoyer has been with RE Sources since 1997. In her 15 years with the organization, she has been a key player in developing RE Sources’ programs such as North Sound Baykeeper, Power Past Coal, the RE Store, the Sustainable Living Center and Sustainable Schools.
Previously as the nonprofit’s program director, Hoyer helped refine RE Sources’ focus and expand its reach.
“My primary objective as program director was to ensure that our programs were helping us achieve our mission and meeting the needs of the community,” Hoyer said. “As executive director, I’ll continue this programmatic work while building staff capacity, engaging our community and creating a positive organizational culture.”
