So, the search continues. We have been assured that Linda will continue in her current capacity until the right candidate is found! If you know of any qualified candidates, please refer them to the job posting at www.bethemeth.org/executive-director-search. If you have questions or suggestions for the Search Committee, please contact [email protected]
