Executive director search reopens



Following a preliminary round of interviews, the screening committee for the Oregon Arts Commission/Oregon Cultural Trust executive director search elected to reopen the search to ensure a pool of two to three finalists for the public round of interviews. While impressed with initial applicants, the committee determined expanding the search will guarantee a stronger group of finalists. “We are committed to finding the best possible candidate to lead our organizations into the future,” agreed Julie Vigeland, chair of the Arts Commission and Bob Speltz, chair of the Cultural Trust board. “If that requires spending more time on the process, we will do it.” Applications will be accepted at www.oregonjobs.org through Monday, April 28.
