Jo Cooper, Executive Director of Friends in Action

It has been said that “Leadership is about making others better as a result of your presence and making sure that impact lasts in your absence.”

Jo is the Executive Director of Friends and Action. In our second podcast conversation we talk about what services Friends in Action currently offers to our community as well as the work it took to plan, build and open an adult playground in Ellsworth. Jo also announces her upcoming retirement after almost 20 years of leading her organization and discusses the transition plan currently being undertaken.
