CPR Seeks Executive Director

I regret to report that CPR is losing its outstanding executive director, Shana Jones.  Shana’s tenure has produced a true CPR success story, when the organization stabilized on the funding front and its staff began steady growth.  When Shana joined us, CPR staff was half its current size.  In great measure because of her steady hand at the tiller, we’ve developed in almost every significant way since then. Our budget and staff are bigger, our profile is higher, our mission is better defined, and, if you’ll pardon the hint of immodesty, we think we’ve made a difference on some important policy issues during her tenure. We’ll miss Shana when she leaves us early next year.

In the meantime, we’re in search of a similarly energetic and accomplished executive director. The job description is here. We encourage readers of CPRBlog to circulate the announcement to anyone who might be interested.

The deadline for applications is September 30.
