Important Message from EPI Board President: Join me in Welcoming EPI's Next Executive Director

posted on Thursday, September 1, 2022

After an extensive search by the Executive Search Committee, I am very pleased to announce Katie Slade has been appointed as EPI's Executive Director. She becomes our fourth Executive Director in our 65 year history.

Katie has been with EPI for more than 14 years - she is experienced, deeply dedicated to the mission of the organization, and has built strong relationships on behalf of the organization. Her time with the agency has been spent advancing the mission working closely with the leadership team including EPI's previous Executive Director, Chris Sparks.

EPI is in an incredibly strong position for this leadership transition. We are financially and programmatically stable, have talented and tenured leadership, and the board is engaged and experienced.

I am extremely excited to have Katie continue to lead the organization in providing support in the community for a range of people with differing abilities and helping families find safe, enriching child care. Please join me in congratulating Katie and welcoming her to this new role.

Steve Lindaman
EPI Board President
