Susan Benton has resigned as president of the Williams Lake Central Business Improvement Area Association.
The association made the announcement yesterday.
Sheila Mortensen, the vice-president, will take over the presidency until the association’s next annual general meeting to be held in January. Benton had been in the position since January.
In a press release, Benton called the decision “difficult.”
She cited her commitment to Curves that made the continuation of her presidency a challenge.
Judy O’Neill, association executive director, noted Benton had been a board member and will continue as a member of the association and pointed to contributions Benton made during her time as president.
“Sue was very helpful in putting on Street Party which was a vast amount of work,” said O’Neill, noting that the work doesn’t end there and continues with Art Walk and Winter Lights festivities.
“It’s a lot of ongoing work. You’re always doing something.”
Mortensen is a long-term board member and two-time vice-president.
