I am pleased to announce the appointment of the search committee to identify ODK’s next Executive Director.
At such a critically important time – both in our history and as we prepare to celebrate our centennial – identifying and hiring someone who can provide the energy, innovation and passion for our Society’s work is of paramount importance.
The complete position description, ODK’s organizational profile and instructions for submitting candidate credentials for the committee’s consideration can be found at odk.org/edsearch. It is my hope that a new, permanent Executive Director will begin their work on July 1, 2013.
I am grateful to Dr. Steve Bisese, Vice President for Student Development at the University of Richmond and Past National President, for agreeing to lead the search to find ODK’s next chief executive. The seven-member search committee, in addition to Dr. Bisese, includes Gene Vance, President of the ODK Foundation, Dr. Chon Glover, Chair of the National Advisory Council and Faculty Advisor for the Circle at William and Mary, Dr. Kathy Smith, Member of the National Advisory Council and Faculty Advisor to the Circle at Ball State, Russ Chambliss, Foundation Trustee, Hillary Mintz, two-time At-Large Member of the Board of Directors and Steven Binninger, ODK’s National Student Vice President. Ken Taylor, from National Headquarters, will provide support for the committee’s work.
This is an important time in our Society’s history, and I deeply appreciate their willingness to serve the Society in this important capacity.
I encourage you to share this exciting opportunity to lead ODK into its next century of service with those who may be interested in being considered in the Executive Director position.
