Ania Camargo will step down as chair of the Beacon Hill Civic Association (BHCA) in May, curtailing her two-year term by one year.
Camargo, who cited “family health reasons” as the reason for her decision, said she would continue to serve on the BHCA board and remain involved in district projects.
“I can’t work at the same level and do a good job,” Camargo said, “but I’ll still be very involved. That’s not changing.”
BHCA President Steve Young said, “No one could bring more dedication, competence or time commitment to the BHCA and Beacon Hill community than Ania has given as president and chair of the association. It has been and still is a pleasure to work with her, although as anyone who knows her will understand, a bit exhausting at times. The BHCA and Beacon Hill neighborhood are fortunate to have her.”
BHCA Executive Director Suzanne Besser said Camargo’s replacement would be determined by the Nominating Committee, which is now beginning to recruit new board members and officers.
The Nominating Committee will submit its recommendations to the board at its April meeting, and the entire slate will be voted on during the BHCA’s annual meeting on May 21, Besser said.
