News: Christine Lowden retires
After 25 years professional involvement in Dundee’s Third Sector, the Chief Executive Officer of Dundee Voluntary Action is to retire.
Christine Lowden has served DVA as CEO, Depute CEO and in other roles since 2001. She has played a leading role in creating constructive partnerships between Dundee City Council and the city’s voluntary and community organisations.
Christine said, “Over the years we have shown that working together is good for the city. The Third Sector is at the heart of strategic planning with Dundee City Council and Dundee Health & Social Care Partnership.”
Christine’s professional interests include charity law, mediation, business and strategic planning, group work skills, facilitation and training, policy development, equality, equity and women’s issues, and in retirement she plans to put her skills to good use in other ways.
“I won’t be leaving the Third Sector behind, and plan to do some volunteering. I plan to spend time developing my many interests. And I have grandchildren!”
Christine will be retiring on 6th June.
Brenda Fenton, Chair of the DVA Board, said, “Christine has been at the centre of Dundee’s voluntary sector for as long as most of us can remember. She has made a huge contribution to DVA and we are sorry to see her go. We wish her well in her retirement.”
