NARST Executive Director Position

Dear NARST Members,

As many of you will have heard at the NARST conference, our current Executive Director, Helen Schneider Lemay, will be leaving on May 31, 2021. We want to thank Helen for her exceptional service and leadership to NARST and wish her well in her future endeavors.

We are excited that Dr. Lisa Martin-Hansen has been hired to serve as interim ED to allow the NARST Board time to conduct a search for a new ED. The new ED would start on September 1, 2021 working alongside Dr. Martin-Hansen until October 14, 2021 and taking on full ED responsibilities starting at the NARST Board Meeting October 15, 2021.

We are currently seeking applicants for the ED position, with application due June 25, 2021. The attached documentation provides details about the responsibilities of the ED, compensation ($60,000 annually, for approximately 20 hours per week), and application process. We encourage NARST members interested in the ED position to reach out to the Search Chair (Dr. Gillian Roehrig, roehr013@umn.edu) and/or any NARST Search Committee or Board members with questions.

Thanks for considering this important role within NARST.

Gillian Roehrig, on behalf of the NARST ED Search Committee (Drs. Valarie Akerson, Knut Neumann, Jerome Shaw, and Dana Zeidler)
