UPDATE: Executive Director Search
July 15, 2022
A Note from the Search Committee Chair
I am pleased to announce following the recommendation by the Executive Director Search Committee that USITT has successfully contracted, Isaacson Miller (IM) to conduct a search for our next Executive Director. References gave superlative recommendations with special mention to their commitment to follow-up check-ins following a successful hire. Both their references and their proposal touted the success IM has demonstrated in producing a diverse pool of applicants. I am excited to begin working with IM on this important endeavor.
We are currently working to schedule a “launch meeting” with IM and the ED Search Committee. At the meeting, IM will outline their timeline and plan for the search. It is important to know that IM will control the timeline. We are also at the informational stage where we are providing various profile documents to provide information on our rich history, current status, and plans for the future of the Institute. Parallel to this IM will be conducting interviews with targeted groups within USITT working diligently to know us much about us as we can tell them. To this point, I have been exceedingly pleased with their thoroughness and professionalism.
As we proceed through this process, there will be consistent information addressed to the membership on the progress. At the next Leadership Listening webinar, both President Carolyn Satter and I will be available to share any additional updates. This meeting is currently being scheduled. A date in August will be announced shortly.
