It is with deep regret that we announce the resignation of our founder and first chair, Matt Schoenley, from Secular Coalition for Arizona’s board of directors. Matt’s departure stems from anticipated changes in his work as a Southwest Airlines pilot.
After forming Secular Coalition for Arizona in 2010 and recruiting a few of us to help nurture the organization’s growth, Matt served as first chair and executive director. For the past two years, he has continued his leadership involvement as vice chair. During this busy period, we took steps to professionalize our organization by adding board members and skilled contracted staff who have helped expand Secular AZ’s scope and impact.
Matt’s contributions as founder and executive board member of SC Arizona have been invaluable and we will miss his leadership. Nevertheless, he can take pride in leaving a healthy and growing organization that will continue to prosper.
Please join us as we wish Matt all the best in his professional career and thank him for the immense contribution he has made to our cause and our organization.
