Exit Interview: Nancy Andrew and the Future of Habitat for Humanity – Choptank


Almost since the Spy began publishing in 2009, we have welcomed the opportunity to talk to long-tenured nonprofit leaders in anticipation of their planned departure of the organizations they serve.  While it’s unfortunate that human resources offices nowadays have somewhat co-opted the phrase “exit interview,”  it does describes the interest and usefulness in capturing these informed leaders reflections on the causes they serve and their analysis of the challenges and opportunity to come.

And that is the case with the Spy’s latest interview with Nancy Andrew after her eight years with Habitat for Humanity – Choptank. Nancy has decided to leave the organization as its executive director at the end of January after eight years at the helm.

And while Nancy acknowledges that her decision to leave Habitat matches her time spent leading Talbot Mentors, another highly respected Talbot County nonprofit, her reflections in her interview with the Spy indicate to her that nonprofit organizations, like any business, go through cycles of development which is not related to periods of time.  Nancy also shares her thoughts on how things have changed but also how the organization’s core business and mission has not during that time.

This video is approximately five minutes in length. For more information about Habitat for Humanity – Choptank please go here.
