From the FLP Mailbox, this announcement of the search for a new Executive Director:
The American Constitution Society for Law and Policy today announced it was beginning a search for a new executive director to succeed Lisa Brown, who resigned in November after being selected by President-elect Barack Obama to be the next White House Staff Secretary.
“This is an exciting time for ACS, one in which we have unparalleled opportunities to shape debate on legal and public policy issues,” said ACS Board of Directors Chair Goodwin Liu. “This position offers a prime opportunity for a talented, visionary leader to help guide one of the nation’s premier legal organizations.”
Brown’s former deputy, David Lyle, now serves as ACS’s Acting Executive Director.â€¨
“The ACS Board of Directors is pleased that David has agreed to serve as Acting Executive Director until a permanent successor to Lisa is in place,” Liu noted. “He knows the organization and its members well, and we are confident ACS will take full advantage of the opportunities before it as he works with our excellent staff and active and engaged membership.”
The full Executive Director job description and application process are available here. The application deadline is March 2, 2009.
