Update: July 2023. Position filled. Click here to see our new Peace Secretary.
Recently, our long-term Peace Secretary, Yosi McIntire offered his resignation so that he could travel more. Yosi has been an inspiration to us all for his tireless commitment to peace and justice. We thank him for his energy and involvement with the board, especially his most recent project to set up the new US Servas Peace Awards.
US Servas and Servas International want to reestablish our organizations’ commitment to peace by moving it to the forefront of our website, publications, marketing efforts, events we host, and organizational structures. Servas International now has two, dynamic Peace Secretaries, Francisco Solomon Luna of Mexico, and Mai Wang of Taiwan. Both are outgoing, personable, and strong advocates for the P&J component of Servas. We look forward to sharing ideas and projects with them.
As we move forward, we see this as an opportunity to reinvigorate the position with new ideas.Thus, we are looking for a new US Peace Secretary to build and lead the US Servas Peace & Justice team… someone who is an excellent start-up leader with fresh ideas, networking skills, the ability to work with and motivate others, and to share a vision for this group. We are hopeful that our new Peace Secretary will develop a strong team and set up procedures to ensure the team’s ongoing success in the future.
