Report
BACKGROUND
After eight successful years, Tracy Wingrove, Executive Director of the Santa Clara City Library Foundation and Friends (Foundation), is departing the organization on December 4, 2019. Tracy leaves the Foundation in a place of operational and financial stability, with a strong team, robust organizational culture and well-established relationships across the community.
After a nationwide search, the Foundation has announced JoAnn T. Davis as its new executive director. Ms. Davis started in her new role on November 4, 2019.
DISCUSSION
Ms. Davis has held numerous leadership positions in local Bay Area non-profits. She has also been a community volunteer and non-profit Board member. She believes that non-profit and public service organizations play a critical role in the well-being of a community and has focused her career on the support of these organizations. Ms. Davis holds a BA in Political Science from San Jose State University. She joins the Foundation from Community Services for Children where she served as the interim CFO and helped the organization improve and expand their department and provided a smooth transition for the new CFO.

Ms. Davis will be introduced to the Board and will share her experiences and vision for the Foundation.
