Piedmont ARC seeks new director

One of Charlottesville's key non-profits is looking for a new executive director. The ARC of the Piedmont– ARC standing for Association of Retarded Citizens– must find a new leader due to the February 10 resignation of longtime director Christina Delzingaro, who has led the group for 12 years. "I have new opportunities that I will be pursuing,” Delzingaro said in a release. In the same release, the ARC board chair, Krissy Lasagna, said the board was "reluctantly" accepting the resignation. Delzingaro had become a cornerstone of the community, having held governor-appointed seats on state commissions, and she currently serves as president to JAUNT, the transporation service for disabled citizens. The ARC was founded in 1954 to assist retarded and otherwise disable citizens and their families.
