Executive Director Search Update

Martha Richards, Chair, GRANTMAKERS of Oregon and Southwest Washington Search Committee   

The Search Committee is continuing work to identify the next leader of GRANTMAKERS.  After carefully reviewing several strong proposals, we have selected The 360 Group, an executive search firm, to partner with around this important work.  Their experience with membership and philanthropic organizations, matched with a core commitment to diversity and equity, made their team a great fit. 

Vincent Robinson, Founder and Managing Partner, and Melissa Ullum, Partner, are already hard at work.  A position profile has been created and distributed.  Stakeholder conversations have started to include broad input and diverse perspectives from members and stakeholders.  Please contact Melissa at Melissa@MSSsearch.com or (503) 244-2126 if you would like additional information about this process.

The Search Committee meets on a regular basis and continues to create learning opportunities around such topics as unconscious bias and leadership trends for membership organizations.  We are on track with our goal of completing this process by December 2017.  Thank you for your commitment to GRANTMAKERS and interest in this process.  We will provide another update this summer.
