KRC Launches Search for New Executive Director
The Kansas Rural Center Board of Directors announces its search for a new Executive Director, following current director Mary Fund’s retirement announcement in early September.
“When I took the position in June 2015, I intended to only be here another two years at most, but now it is time. I will be retiring as Executive Director at the end of 2019,” Fund stated, “It is time for me to put more energy into my farm and my personal and family needs, but as with all previous KRC transitions, I am happy to help out if and where needed to make the transition as easy as possible.”
Fund announced her retirement publically via a personal message to KRC’s electronic mailing list on Sept. 3. She will work until the end of December. The KRC board of directors will be viewing applications and interviewing in November or December.
