The retirement of our executive director, Mary Jane Park, is just around the corner. On behalf of the organization I want to thank her for her commitment and work during her tenure with the Warehouse Arts District Association (WADA).
As donors, members, and others interested in our work, we wanted to give you some information about how the Warehouse Arts District Association is moving forward.
The Board of Directors has formed a Search Committee that has just begun meeting. We expect to spend the remainder of the summer developing a thorough process and to have a formal announcement/application out this fall. The Committee is comprised of Board members who have expertise in the skill areas that a new executive director will need to be successful in the position.
WADA currently has on staff a Board consultant who is filling the role of interim director as well as an excellent COO who has been integrally involved with the organization since its inception.
The position will be well advertised, most likely around mid-October. We would like to fill the position in January, but finding the right person is more important to us than the precise timing.
We will keep you informed of our progress as the process moves forward.
The chair of the Search Committee, Wendy Durand, can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact her.
