ASMP Executive Director Search

Earlier this year, current Executive Director Thomas Kennedy announced to the Board and membership that 2020 would be the year he would step into retirement. After further discussion, the date of Tom’s last day will be June 30, 2020. From all of us here at ASMP, I want to thank Tom for an incredible show of leadership as ASMP navigated these last many years.

The first step in the transition was to work with the National Board and Tom Kennedy to draft a job description for the incoming Executive Director. That has been completed, and you can find a PDF of the description below. This has also been posted on non-profit job boards and other avenues.
