The process of selecting a new MLA executive director to succeed Rosemary G. Feal is under way. The position profile, written by the search committee and the Executive Council, is now available on the MLA’s search page and on the Web site of our search consultants, Isaacson, Miller. The position will be advertised in the Chronicle of Higher Education at the beginning of the academic year.
Isaacson, Miller has already begun assembling information about potential candidates and will ramp up its activities as the summer comes to an end. The search committee will continue to meet this fall and next year. Our plan is to provide a list of finalists to the Executive Council so that it can make a decision in early 2017.
Although most of our activity between now and then must be confidential, I want to assure you that our silence does not mean that we are idle!
With my best wishes for a productive summer,
Anthony Appiah, MLA President
Chair, Search Committee
