BEC head steps down

Robyn DiFalco says she’ll stick around until the nonprofit finds a new director

Butte Environmental Council will soon say goodbye to Robyn DiFalco, who is stepping down after four years as executive director of the environmental nonprofit. DiFalco (pictured) cited personal reasons for leaving, including spending more time with family.

DiFalco’s last day isn’t set in stone, as she’ll stick around to ensure her successor’s smooth transition. The plan, DiFalco said, is to select a candidate by the end of February and make the change in March.

“I care very passionately about BEC, about our work and all the people that I’ve worked with,” DiFalco said. “I will continue to be involved with the organization, I just won’t be a director. I’ll be a community volunteer and I will continue to be passionate about our issues.”
