CLEARWATER – The Juvenile Welfare Board of Pinellas County (JWB) has launched a nationwide search for a new CEO to succeed Dr. Marcie A. Biddleman, who plans to retire in Sept. 2019 after 10 years with the organization.
Biddleman announced this to the JWB board two years ago and reaffirmed her plans during her most recent evaluation. The board has seated a CEO Search Committee, comprised of its members, charged with finding her replacement.
Established by a Special Act of the Florida Legislature in 1945 and approved overwhelmingly by Pinellas County voters in 1946, JWB is an independent special taxing district that responsibly invests property tax dollars to give children the best opportunities to lead healthy, successful, and satisfying lives. JWB is governed by an 11-member board and nationally accredited through the Council on Accreditation.
In the 2018 fiscal year, their annual program budget of $57 million strengthened the lives of 66,000 children and families through investments in 88 programs with 49 nonprofit agencies. In addition, their collective work with Pinellas County partners addresses such complex issues as childhood hunger, grade-level reading, and preventable child deaths.
JWB’s investments and work are focused on four strategic areas: School Readiness, School Success, the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect and Strengthening Community.
