To all--

During our most recent Board of Directors meeting in Durham, North Carolina, Dr. Bret Stolp announced that the deadline for accepting applications for the UHMS Executive Director position is 01 June 2006. The Executive Director position will be vacated at the end of 2007 when Don Chandler plans to retire. The first formal meeting of the Search Committee will be during the UHMS Annual Scientific Meeting in Orlando, Florida, in June, 2006. Applications should be sent via email to Don Chandler at donchandler@uhms.org The Search Committee is chaired by Bret Stolp, MD, with membership made up of: Ron Bangasser, MD: Simon Mitchell, MD; Neil Hampson, MD; Dick Clarke, CHT; Laurie Gesell, MD, Enrico Camporesi, MD, and Don Chandler, MA. As announced earlier, an undergraduate degree is required whereas an advanced degree is desired and a terminal degree by an applicant will weigh heavily in his/her favor. Also, experience in managing a non-profit organization will be a big plus in the selection process.

As you know, the location of the UHMS office is in transition since selling our property in Kensington, Maryland, and our Board of Directors are currently considering management and location options. A decision on the location and management of the UHMS office is expected by the time of our annual meeting in June, 2006. Currently, the corporate office is temporarily located in Dunkirk, Maryland in leased office space.

The salary of the position is negotiable commensurate with the applicant's experience and education.

Please let me know if you have questions.
