News from the ROC Executive Director

patTo my colleagues and friends in the Prospect Communities –

As some of you already know, I will be leaving my position as Executive Director of the Resource Opportunities Centre, the community development non-profit that serves the communities along Route 333 and operates the bustling Prospect Road Community Centre in Hatchet Lake. I will be moving down to the U.S. soon to help my elderly mother and my siblings during this phase of my family’s life, and I feel privileged to have been able to spend these past two years with all of you. I will be part of our Board’s recruitment process and will remain through the hiring and orientation of a new Executive Director, which we’re envisioning will happen prior to our Annual General Meeting in mid-June.

The ROC was started many years ago by a group of inspired community members, and it continues to be fully run and supported by people in this area. It’s a wonderful and healthy organization and a very special, dynamic and warm community. I feel very fortunate to have been able to serve the ROC over the last two years as its first and ‘transitional’ Executive Director. Because of the dedication and hard work of the staff and volunteers over the years preceding this, I was able to really enjoy getting to know this community and work together with you to simply further the work that had gone before.

I feel very happy to be leaving with such a strong staff and volunteer board who work together as a team with the clear, shared intention of service to the community. I have endless gratitude and appreciation for everyone I have worked with, celebrated with, and learned from during this time. I carry so many positive experiences in my heart, and I look forward to seeing what the future will bring for everyone.

I’m still here, so please don’t hesitate to contact me any time at I’d love to hear from you.

With endless appreciation and respect,

Patricia Ullman
