CMPDD’s Director of Finance, Ms. Shay Lipe, has announced her retirement after 31½ years of service to the District. Shay began her career with CMPDD on May 1, 1989 serving as Administrative Accountant for a major portion of her career. On July 1, 2010, Shay was promoted to Director of Finance where she served as an integral part of CMPDD’s management team. Under Shay’s leadership as Director of Finance, the District streamlined its accounting system by embracing and adapting to new electronic technology that increased productivity. In recent years, Shay was instrumental in implementing new web-based electronic signature software that greatly reduced circulation time and piles of paperwork. These improvements proved invaluable this year during the COVID-19 crisis when employees were working from home. We wish Shay all the best in her retirement that was effective October 31, 2020. Thank you for a job well done!!
