CHARGE: The Executive Director Search Special Committee is charged with overseeing the search for a new Executive Director for the American Association of Law Libraries. The Committee will work with an executive search firm to create a position profile, to identify and solicit applicants, to interview a group of candidates, and to recommend to the Board up to three final candidates.
It is expected that the search will be proactive and nationwide and will attract a highly-qualified and diverse pool of applicants. Particular attention will be paid to attracting applicants from a broad spectrum of library-related and law-related association management organizations. Current members of the AALL Executive Board are ineligible for consideration. The Committee will keep the AALL Executive Board informed about the process and the timetable to be followed.
The final step in the Committee's work will be to provide the AALL Executive Board with a confidential report containing a summary of the process followed, a detailed rationale, and a recommendation of up to three final candidates, ranked in order of Committee preference. The Committee's term expires upon presentation of its prioritized list of candidates to the Board. Selection of the successful candidate will be the responsibility of the Executive Board, which will also set the salary range. The President and the Treasurer are charged on behalf of the Board to negotiate compensation and other contractual terms of employment with the successful candidate.
SIZE: The Committee shall consist of a Chair and six members. Serving as Ex Officio members will be the Interim Executive Director and the Director of Meetings.
