PROVIDENCE - R.I. Housing CEO and Executive Director Barbara Fields will step down from her role in March when her contract expires, R.I. Housing announced Tuesday.
The R.I. Housing Board of Commissioners Chairman Nicholas Retsinas and the Executive Office of Commerce will convene a search committee for Fields' replacement.
In a statement, Fields said “[In October] I was selected by my colleagues from across the country to serve on the executive board of the National Council of State Housing Agencies, a national organization uniquely positioned to address the country's housing crisis. Since accepting this appointment, I have been presented with a number of opportunities that would allow me to continue championing housing issues on a larger scale. Therefore, I will not continue in my role as executive director of RIHousing when my contract expires on March 1.”
