Diane Wilush to Retire from Post as President & CEO of UCP of Georgia & South Carolina
ATLANTA, GA. – Diane Wilush, President & CEO of United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) of Georgia & South Carolina, will retire from her post effective December 31.
Wilush, who spent the first 10 years of her career at a UCP affiliate in South Florida before moving to Atlanta and leading the agency where she spent the past 30 years, has been a long-time leader in both the UCP affiliate network and in ANCOR. She is Immediate Past Chair of the UCP Board of Trustees; is a member of the Board of Directors of SPADD (the Service Providers Association for Developmental Disabilities, Georgia’s state provider association), where she previously served a term as President; and has served in a number of volunteer roles within ANCOR, including as a member of the State Association Executives Forum and as a member of the Case for Inclusion Steering Committee.
After attending her retirement party in Atlanta, Armando Contreras, President & CEO of UCP National, had this to share with UCP’s affiliate network: “Knowing Diane, of course, the word retirement isn’t quite apropos. She’s already let us know she’ll continue to be involved in United Cerebral Palsy and elsewhere in the disability world, and I look forward to her continued participation at UCP’s national board level.” ANCOR echoes Contreras in wishing Diane the very best as she begins this exciting new chapter in her life.
