Charlotte Klamer, Executive Director of Colonial CASA, is announcing plans to retire in the spring of this year. Ms. Klamer came to Colonial CASA in March of 2014 following successful stints as Director of Historic St. Luke's Restoration in Smithfield and as the Director of Donor Stewardship at the College of William and Mary.

During her tenure with CCASA, Ms. Klamer enhanced relationships with community organizations, and developed strong ties with the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority at William and Mary, a National CASA affiliated group. She cultivated a robust, working Board of Directors, promoted new standing and ad hoc committees for the Board, and significantly grew grant funding while also recognizing a 44% increase in annual giving. Additionally, Ms. Klamer encouraged the formation of the signature fundraiser CASA Couture to expand community outreach efforts, enriched relationships within the VA CASA network, and increased local activities for April Child Abuse Prevention month.

Colonial CASA recruits, trains, and supports community volunteers to advocate for children who are victims of abuse or neglect while they are under the protection of the court. Colonial CASA has served child victims in Williamsburg, James City County, York County and Poquoson since 1995. The CCASA Board of Directors is now encouraging interested professionals to inquire about the position by contacting for more information.
