How do you follow up helping to raise over $600,000 in one night for a worthwhile agency you just so happen to lead?

Well, if you're the executive director of Cascade AIDS Project, you do it by looking for a new job.

For the last two years Jean Ann Van Krevelen has been the Executive Director for Cascade AIDS Project, the oldest and largest community-based provider of HIV services, housing, education and advocacy in Oregon and Southwest Washington.

Now comes word that Van Krevelen has announced to her staff she is stepping down from her position.

On Jan. 11th, 2006 wweek.com published the following regarding Van Krevelen's hiring:
After a three-month search and 84 applicants, the Cascade AIDS Project board has chosen Jean Ann Van Krevelen as executive director. She replaces Thomas Bruner, who unexpectedly left in August after seven years and now works for Multnomah County Chairwoman Diane Linn. Van Krevelen, who will direct CAP's $4 million annual budget and 50 employees, was CEO of Regional AIDS Intercommunity Network in Oklahoma City. There, she helped save the HIV/AIDS nonprofit from closing in her first six months.

Van Krevelen, recently featured in WW, gave a heartfelt speech at CAP's annual art auction which raised over $600,000 on April 5 at the Oregon Convention Center (she is pictured above at the event).

Van Krevelen, who recently became the primary care-giver to her niece and nephew, is said to be leaving due to personal matters.

When WW spoke to Van Krevelen this afternoon she verified her departure although she would not give any other details.

It has not be determined who will succeed her at CAP or when Van Krevelen's last day will be.

Details to follow.
