Message from the Board Chair
by Zach Cowan
Update on the Transition Process
This is an exciting time for SFCP as we move towards having a permanent executive director. The Board and its executive director search committee have begun in earnest on the search process. The purpose of this message is to bring members up to date and give you some idea of what the process will look like. The members of the search committee are: Zach Cowan, Michael Donner, Erik Gann , Kavoos Bassiri, Jessica Areen, Neil Talkofff, Clara Kwun, Walt Beckman
Our goal is to have a new executive director hired and on board by September 1st. This is an ambitious schedule, but we believe it is important to have a new executive director in place by the beginning of the academic year. The search committee is and will be working closely with the Board, but because of the schedule, will be taking on quite a bit of work by itself. After interviewing four search consultants, we have selected Center for Volunteer and Nonprofit Leadership (CVNL; http://www.cvnl.org/). The search committee had its first meeting with CVNL on April 27th, immediately before the board meeting. We discussed the overall process as well as our respective tasks.
