Board of Trustees Announcement – Resignation of Executive Director
From Danielle Dyer President Board of Trustees, The Dubin Center
“It is with a mix of sadness and gratitude that the Board of Directors announces Lynne Thorp’s departure as Executive Director of The Dubin Center effective August 2, 2024. Lynne joined the Dubin Center in 2020 and played a pivotal role during a unique time in the organization’s history by ensuring the continuity of services through COVID and Hurricane Ian. We want to thank her for her dedicated service which involved many significant accomplishments, including:
– Spearheading the strategic planning process resulting in a new vision and mission for the agency followed by rebranding, website redesign and full-scale marketing campaign.
– Growing revenue through successful fundraising events, campaigns, and grant writing.
– Advancing reporting capabilities through financial and operational data migration and capture.
– Establishing new partnerships with local community organizations to provide educational and social programming for older adults at risk of isolation.
Over the next few months, Lynne will remain as Executive Director and be instrumental in supporting the Board of Trustees in the hiring and onboarding processes. During this transition period, it is our priority to find the best individual to continue along this successful trajectory, while maintaining a stable and effective organization. If you have any questions or concerns during this transition process, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at
[email protected].”

From Lynne Thorp, Executive Director, The Dubin Center
Southwest Florida is fortunate to have the Dubin Center. Not every area of the state or country has a local resource fully dedicated to providing free assistance to family caregivers navigating a dementia-related condition. It is an invaluable resource for our families, and I am honored to have gotten to know so many incredible caregivers and serve as the Executive Director.
I want to express my deepest gratitude to all who have supported the organization and me: staff, board members, community partners, and the generous funders of the Dubin Center. Without you, the organization would not be as strong and vibrant as it is today. I will remain in my position while I work with the Board of Trustees to find a qualified and enthusiastic leader ready to guide the Dubin Center into its third decade of serving family caregivers. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
With Immense Gratitude,
Lynne Thorp, Executive Director
