Next Steps in Presidential Search—Advertisement and Candidate Recruitment

By Purnell T. Cropper | January 25, 2011

“On behalf of the Presidential Search Committee, I would like to thank those who were able to attend the open meetings,” says Chris van de Velde, Chair of the Presidential Search Committee. The information gathered from these meetings as well as the messages we’ve received via the e-mail address will aid us as the Presidential Profile is developed. There is still time to send any additional thoughts you have to the e-mail address above. The Committee met today to review the information received at the open meetings and via e-mail and to begin the process of preparing the Presidential Profile.

“We also wanted to announce that the advertisement for the next President is in the process of being placed in online and print publications. (The text of the ad is on the search web page.) Please feel free to share it with others. This ad is just one method of recruiting applicants. Our search consultant will also be reaching out to his colleagues and contacts to help develop a strong pool of candidates. As you will see in the ad, nominations are being solicited and encouraged. If you would like to nominate someone, please send your nomination, with the CV or resume of the nominee if possible, to All nominations and applications will be treated in confidence. Thank you again for your support and participation in this process.”
