Integral is pleased to announce that Jacinta Tegman has been unanimously appointed by the Integral Board to be their new Chairperson, with immediate effect …
Jacinta Tegman is the President of World Concern, an Integral Member since 2012. World Concern’s headquarters are in Seattle, USA.
Jacinta says, “It is a great honour to be elected to serve as the Integral Alliance Board Chair. I so value the contributions of our former chair, Allan Bussard, as I strive to emulate his heart of service to the Alliance.
She continues, “As the President of World Concern, I have found Integral to be a tremendous blessing to our organisation, as well as to me personally. The partnership that Integral’s 23 Member Agencies have developed over the years is truly remarkable. Our shared mission allows each of us to do so much more together than we could ever do on our own. In my new position as Board Chair, my prayer is that the Alliance will continue to grow in depth of relationship and impact, serving those in greatest need around the world.”
