Dear members of the Federation community,

As most of you are aware, our Executive Director, Ben Davis, has announced that he will be leaving that position at the end of March. While we are sorry to be losing Ben's leadership at the Federation, we have actively begun a search for a new Executive Director. I am serving as the chair of the search committee.

We are advertising the position through a broad range of avenues, both regionally and nationally. In the meantime, we thought that it might also be useful to ask you, the members of the Federation community, to spread the word. If you are aware of any person who has the experience, talent, vision, and enthusiasm to serve in this leadership position, please feel free to make them aware of our search. The details of the position, including the candidate qualifications and success factors, are available on the Federation's website by clicking here.

Please feel free to forward this message to any well-qualified candidates you might be aware of, including those who might not live here but who might be interested in making the South Bend area their home.

Terry Feldbaum
Search Committee Chair
