Greetings CORA Family,
As you know, CORA has been actively searching for our next executive director for the last four months. We’re proud to say, thanks to the commitment of our staff (including interim executive director Jill Morris) and the leadership of the CORA board, that the search has been fruitful and we are on schedule.
CORA is a passionate organization with an important human rights mission. Our executive director should reflect these traits. We also understand that they will be asked to steer the organization in further growth and enhancement of client services. With these in mind, CORA has executed its search and we’d like to share with you where we are in the process.
CORA has worked with an executive search firm since October of 2020 to find the ideal candidate. The search firm located and screened many candidates, finally bringing five to the board-led Executive Director Search Committee. In late January the committee interviewed those candidates and selected three to move on to the next round.
In the next few weeks, a group composed of the CORA board, managers and staff will perform a final set of interviews with the remaining three candidates. Next steps will depend on the outcome of those interviews, but we look forward to sharing outcomes with you whatever the result.
This is an exciting time for CORA. Despite a year of challenges, morale is high and possibilities are blossoming. The organization remains nimble, strong and more committed than ever to addressing domestic violence in our community.
Thank you for your support and patience through this process. We look forward to the day we introduce you to our new executive director!
