Mother in the LGTBQ community, Cheryl Dunkin listens in on Daniel Hoffman-Zinnel's plans to move forward as the newest director or One Iowa in February 2017. He has since announced his resignation, set for August 7.

One Iowa appointed Courtney Reyes interim executive director Wednesday.

The group, which “advances, empowers and improves the lives of LGBTQIA+ Iowans statewide,” created a job posting for individuals to apply for the position on a permanent basis.

Reyes had served as the organization’s director of development and played a “key role” in the group’s fundraising efforts. According to a One Iowa press release, Reyes is “familiar with the day-to-day operations of the organization and has demonstrated management [sic] experience.”

The Board of Directors of One Iowa is working closely with Reyes to "ensure a smooth transition.” All scheduled events and programs will continue as planned.

Current executive director Daniel Hoffman-Zinnel will leave the group effective August 7 to pursue “another career opportunity.” The group thanked him for his time in leadership with them, and wished him well.

They said they will conduct a “nationwide search” to fill the position on a permanent basis and will share leadership transition updates as they are available.
