After eight years with NCLD, President and CEO Lindsay Jones announced her resignation, effective February 4, 2022.
“It’s been my great honor to work alongside NCLD’s Board of Directors and amazing, talented team to remove barriers and create opportunities for the 1 in 5 with learning disabilities and attention issues,” said Jones. “By lifting up the voices of young adults, families, educators and researchers from all walks of life, we’ve raised awareness in Congress and across the nation about the great strengths of those who learn differently. I am proud of what we’ve achieved together.”
Under Lindsay’s guidance, NCLD launched a young adult program, organized parent advocates, enacted a new strategic plan and built NCLD’s national policy portfolio, ensuring it is the leading voice for the 1 in 5 in disability and education.
“We are grateful for Lindsay’s leadership and vision, especially in turbulent times,” said co-chairs Margi Booth and Joe Zimmel. “NCLD is strong and stable. Our Board of Directors is excited to continue NCLD’s great work and expand the impact of the organization as we move into the future.”
NCLD’s Chief Operating Officer, Dr. Kena Mayberry, will assume responsibilities for leading the NCLD team. NCLD’s Board is launching a national search and has retained a firm. More details will be announced shortly.
