Dear KBC Members,
I am writing to officially notify you of my resignation from my position as KBC Board Chair, effective January 26th, 2024. I have thoroughly considered this decision, and after much reflection, I believe it is the right time for me to step down from my responsibilities.
I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the opportunity to serve on the board as your new Chair and in the past as Chair-Elect. It has been an incredible learning experience, and I am honored to have been a part of such a dynamic and impactful coalition.
The Board has appointed Susan Lukwago, current KBC Past-Chair, as Chair and Diana Lady to the now vacant Past-Chair position. Their appointments will begin on January 26th, 2024. I have complete confidence in the continued success of the KBC.
Thank you once again for the trust you have placed in me. It has been a privilege to work alongside such dedicated individuals. I wish the entire board and the KBC continued success in their endeavors.
Nora Elizalde, DNP, CNM, WHNP-BC, IBCLC
Kansas Breastfeeding Coalition Chair
