ARCATA – Arcata Main Street (AMS) Executive Director Jeanette Todd has tendered her resignation from the downtown business organization, effective July 19. Her departure was announced at the monthly meeting of downtown businesses in Jacoby's Storehouse's Plaza View Room.
The well-regarded director, who created an unprecedented number of community events for the Plaza and environs, will become the resource and development director for Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) of Humboldt on July 22.
Todd has served as ED since September of 2017. A farewell event is being planned, with a date to be announced.
AMS President Vicky Joyce said the organization is looking for a new director right away. "We thank Jeanette for her service," Joyce said. "She has brought so much energy and enthusiasm to the downtown that we will surely miss her."
Said Todd, “I have accepted a position as the Resource Development Director for CASA of Humboldt, July 19th will be my last day with Arcata Main Street. It has been a joy working with the downtown business community and the City of Arcata to bring activities, programming and vitality to our petite nonprofit member service area, in such a small community I am sure our paths will cross again. Thank you for the opportunity to learn and grow through these community interactions, I hope to spend time with you in my new role supporting our youth and drawing attention to CASA’s important mission.”
