Letter of resignation from Jill Robinson, Executive Director

Note from the Board of Directors: 


Dear HAT members and supporters,

The Habitat Acquisition Trust (HAT) Board of Directors would like to inform you that Jill Robinson will be leaving her position as Executive Director of HAT in July 2018. We thank Jill for her enormous contributions to HAT during the last three and a half years.

Jill has demonstrated her passion for conservation, strong leadership, and an exceptional talent for building collaborative relationships with staff, board members, volunteers and many others from the larger community. Jill’s diligence, positive energy and commitment to organizational excellence leave HAT an even stronger organization than it was when she arrived. Although we are sad to see her go, we wish Jill all the best as she pursues exciting new opportunities.

Moving forward, the Board of Directors will now start the process for hiring a new Executive Director. We look forward to receiving applications for this important role and to finding another talented individual to help shape HAT’s future. With strong support from the board, and with Jill’s assistance, we anticipate a smooth transition into the role for the next Executive Director as HAT continues to advance conservation objectives on south Vancouver Island.


HAT Board of Directors

Note from Jill:

For the last three and a half years at Habitat Acquisition Trust, I have felt incredibly fortunate to be a part of an organization that I care so deeply for. I am passionate about HAT’s mission to conserve nature on south Vancouver Island and the southern Gulf Islands and I am proud of what our group has accomplished. While I have loved my time at HAT and know I will miss it dearly, I have decided to resign from my position to pursue my career as a Biologist.

I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to work with such a passionate, knowledgeable and hardworking team of staff, board members, volunteers, contractors, and supporters – everyone that has helped support HAT in becoming a leader for conservation. I have truly appreciated your kindness, support and commitment to land protection and have loved being a part of a collaborative, strategic approach to conserving our important natural areas. Together, we’ve all worked hard to build upon HAT’s strong foundation and I feel confident moving forward that HAT will continue to thrive and make a positive impact on local conservation. I wish all the best to HAT in the future and look forward to continuing my involvement with this great organization for years to come.
