Many changes have been happening at CIEDC
during the past six months. The former executive director, Jane
Poertner, died one year ago this March, after 29 years of loyal
service to CIEDC. An interim executive director and transition
consultant managed the Community Action agency until the end of
August, when a new executive director, Angela Stoltzenburg, took the
reins. Stoltzenburg continues to make changes to the agency in an
effort to make it as efficient and effective as possible.
The latest announcement from CIEDC is that a former fiscal assistant
has been named fiscal officer. Kathy Inman of Lincoln had the title
of interim fiscal officer from August until her new position was
made official at the end of December. There will no longer be three
staff members in the fiscal office. Inman will work with Donna Lee
Letterle, fiscal assistant, to manage the fiscal operations. The
agency has a budget of over $6 million each year for several
programs, including Head Start, senior programs, weatherization,
energy assistance and the foster grandparent program.
done an incredible job for CIEDC," said Stoltzenburg. "She is very
dedicated to the agency and it shows through her work. I'm very
thankful to have her as part of our administrative team."
Dee Altman of Lincoln, former administrative secretary, has
recently been announced as the human resources coordinator for CIEDC.

"CIEDC has over 150 employees," Stoltzenburg said. "In order to
provide consistent policy enforcement and high-quality services, it
is important that we have one central source of information. Dee
will do a great job coordinating of our human resource function."
Another recent change at CIEDC is a new phone system, including
voice mail and an automated operator, which services the staff of
over 50 at corporate headquarters, located at 1800 Fifth St. in
Lincoln. A new website is expected to go live this month as well.
