On Wednesday, February 4, the full Board of Trustees met to discuss the progress of the search for a new President of Anna Maria College. On the recommendation of the Search Committee, the Board focused on two of the finalists who had visited the campus at the end of January.

During that meeting, it was agreed that a final, in-depth review of the two should be conducted. Working with the search firm and Board members of the search committee, that review has taken place to the Board’s satisfaction.

We want to thank all of you for your involvement and feedback after the campus interviews. It has been extremely important and underscores our commitment to listening to you – to those whose lives will be most affected by this decision. Your voices matter, and a clearer picture has emerged of the qualities and characteristics of the person who will be our next President and leader of AMC.

The full Board met again on Monday, February 23, and after much discussion, it was agreed that we have yet to find the right candidate. With the input and support of the Board members who were on the Search Committee, and considering the above mentioned feedback from so many of you, the Board has voted to continue the search. The Board decided that no offer would be made to either of the finalists, and asked that the Search Committee be informed and reconvened. Chair Paul DiPierro reconvened the Search Committee on February 26, and the members have enthusiastically committed their energy and time to continue their efforts.

The Committee and the Board will continue to be available to all as we proceed, and will keep you regularly informed of the progress.

The candidates have been on campus engaging with the various constituencies over the past two weeks.  The search committee, endeavouring to be inclusive, is anxious to receive feedback on those visits.  Please conclude your assessments and forward them to a member of the Search Committee (as listed on the website) or place in the suggestion box near the mailroom on campus as soon as possible. 
Thank you everyone for your participation in the search.

Thank you for your input and participation in the campus visit by R.H. Perry consultants Matthew Kilcoyne and Rusty Martin in September. Through the many conversations with students, alumni, faculty, staff and Town of Paxton officials, a presidential profile has been finalized. 
As you know, the search process timeline will occur in five phases. The completion of the presidential profile represents the end of Phase 1: Needs Assessment & Marketing. We now move into Phase 2: Recruitment Strategy and Candidate Management that includes implementing a general and targeted recruitment strategy, nominations and outreach. During this phase, the Search Committee reviews the top candidates’ background and qualifications.  Nominations and completed applications are due by November 7 at which time the review committee will begin to evaluate the candidates.
If you have any questions, please contact any search committee member, or connect through the website, or email Kay Prentiss at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or (508) 849-3228.  I look forward to hearing from you.
