April Executive Director Letter


Residents and Community Members,


It's been an exhilarating first month with the Chugiak-Eagle River Senior Center team. As many of you are aware, I initiated an Executive Director mailing list to foster direct and frequent communication with residents. If you haven't already signed up and wish to be included, please shoot me an email at, or swing by and provide Margaret with your email address.


In this initial month, we've conducted food surveys, engaged with Municipal and State staff, tackled the sizable task of shoveling the roof (no small feat, but we got it done), reinstated Heather on a full-time basis, appointed a new Finance Director, and completed our reorganization and staff realignments. For a detailed overview of our achievements and future plans, we invite you to join us at the April 24th board meeting.


Our newest addition to the team is Lindsey Causer, our Finance Director. Lindsey grew up in southern California with parents that believed in public service and giving back to the community. Her parents, missionaries who established over 148 churches in Africa, built 10 drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers, and managed a homeless shelter in California for over a decade, instilled in Lindsey a deep understanding of nonprofit work and community engagement.


With a bachelor's degree in accounting and experience in setting up four distinct nonprofit

accounting systems, Lindsey's background is richly immersed in municipal and state processes, garnered from her tenure with the Municipality of Anchorage and the State of Alaska. Her expertise in accounting and familiarity with governmental procedures and systems are proving to be invaluable assets to our team.


Please join us in extending a warm welcome to Lindsey as she joins us in serving the residents and community of Chugiak-Eagle River.
