BEYOND the Bell will begin its search for a new executive officer this week.
Adele Kenneally has announced she will step down from the position after five years at the helm.
"I have enjoyed my time with Beyond the Bell; it has been an exciting and challenging role," Ms Kenneally said.
Beyond the Bell board chair Francis Broekman said the collective was an extraordinary community development initiative.
"There have been many achievements by Beyond the Bell that are quite exciting and many of these are directly attributable to Adele's passion, collaborative efforts and incredible skill in bringing people together," he said.
