NACoA President to Retire

After 20 years of service, Sis Wenger, President and CEO of the National Association for Children of Alcoholics (NACoA), has announced plans to retire later this year. She still plans to focus on program initiatives and NACoA’s 30th anniversary year in 2013, up until her retirement.

“Through Sis Wenger’s leadership, lives of millions have been helped – here and abroad. She has been instrumental in establishing NACoA as the unequivocal voice for children and families impacted by alcohol and drug use problems and the champion for their support, resilience and recovery,” said NACoA Board Chair Dr. Faye Calhoun, former Deputy Director of the National Institute for Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. “NACoA and those we serve are deeply grateful for her years of service and leadership.”

Throughout Wenger’s tenure the NACoA has worked with leaders of:
  • faith
  • education
  • social work
  • primary care health fields

“It has been especially gratifying to have so many professionals in these fields collaborate with NACoA over the years, and recognize that what they do matters greatly,” Wenger said. “They represent the systems that interact the most closely with children and families. This has strengthened opportunities for children of parents with alcohol or drug use problems to find the help they need to thrive.”
