Clark to leave victims agency

JAMISON After 25 years, Barbara P. Clark is to step down in 2016 from her position as executive director of Network of Victim Assistance (NOVA).

"The board of directors is deeply grateful to Barbara for her vision, her passion for NOVA's mission, and her strategic leadership over more than two decades," Karen M. Kern, the search committee chair and member of the board of directors, said in a statement.

A resident of Doylestown, Clark helped the 41-year-old NOVA evolve from a small nonprofit victim-services agency with a budget of $235,000 in 1991 to a significantly larger, financially sound, and nationally recognized victim services organization with a budget of more than $3.27 million.

Inquiries regarding the executive director search may be directed to Marion Biglan, Leadership Recruiters, at 267-625-0916 or MHBiglan@LeadRecruit.com.

NOVA supports, counsels, and empowers victims of sexual assault and other serious crimes. It has offices in Jamison, Fairless Hills, and Perkasie. - Inquirer staff
