An Update from the NTEN Board of Directors

Submitted by Amy on Thu, 12/06/2012 - 12:00pm

I'm sharing an update with the NTEN Community today on behalf of Amy Borgstrom, our Board Chair:

Now that you've had a day to absorb the news that Holly has decided to pursue a new opportunity, we want to assure you that you can expect the same high level of programs and services that you are used to as we move forward. We have a great team in place--both Board and staff--and are acting together quickly on three fronts:

  • Communications: We are committed to keeping you informed as we move through the process of selecting a firm to help us recruit and select the next executive director. You will be hearing from us frequently until a new leader is in place.
  • Recruitment and selection: Our board has extensive skills and experience in conducting executive search processes. We have a working group in place to develop and execute the search who are already meeting on a regular basis. Stay tuned.
  • Interim progress: We will be hands-on along with our gifted staff to make sure that we not only continue business as usual, but continue innovating to benefit our terrific community. In particular, we look forward to a fabulous NTC in Minneapolis, and a successful end-of-year fundraising effort.

NTEN is all about change. We bid a fond adieu to Holly, and thank her for her dedication and hard work over the last ten years. In the meantime, we are open to your good ideas and continued enthusiastic engagement as we embrace our next chapter.
