A little over a week ago, I gave my notice at my nonprofit job; Friday is my last day. Next Monday, I begin a new job in the private sector.
I’m excited and ready for the change. There are also many, many people I have met through this work whom I will miss–my staff, counterparts at Oregon Housing and Community Services, fellow committee members, the clients I have been fortunate to interact with, and community partners around the state.
Predictions about the future seem to invite their own undoing. So rather than predict whether the future might hold more nonprofit work for me, I will simply say that, at this point, I feel like I have gotten the idea of nonprofit work-as-source-of-income out of my system.
