|Livingwell board to revamp CEO job description|
Livingwell Foundation will begin a search for a new chief executive officer once the group revises the job description for the post at next month's board meeting.
Paul West, who has served as the foundation's CEO since late January 2007, recently accepted the executive director position for a new workforce group, New Opportunities Vision Achievement.
During Livingwell Foundation's board of directors meeting Tuesday, Mayor Dave Norris, who serves as chairman of the foundation, said a search for a new CEO should begin soon. He said a number of people have inquired about the position.
In the meantime, the foundation's board members were asked to revise the CEO's job description to help the board select a person who best meets the foundation's needs.
"It may be that what we're looking for today is much different than what we were looking for a year ago," said Dr. Jan Corder, a foundation board member.
Corder said one of the most important qualities the foundation's CEO must have is an ability to secure grants so the foundation can leverage its funds.
"We've got to get somebody who at least seeks out what grant opportunities are available," said Norris. "If could be that grant writers who are competent in specific areas could be employed, but we still have to figure out what grants are available."
"That will be an important characteristic of the person we're looking for." Norris added.
Violet Liner, chairwoman of the board of commissioners of Hospital Service District No. 1, said the foundation's CEO has to be a person who runs the foundation and keeps an eye out for grant opportunities.
She commended the foundation's board for its efforts, but she believes the board has done much of the work that a CEO should be doing.
"We envisioned that your first act of business would be to hire an employee to run the foundation so you all would not have to spend so much time that you have done in volunteer work," Liner said. "I applaud you for that because you all have put in hours and hours into this, and some had almost had to retire to continue doing foundation work."
She said besides looking for additional grant opportunities, a CEO must keep tabs on the foundation's current grants to make sure applicants are following the foundation's guidelines.
