CASE Launches Search for Vice President of Education

WASHINGTON, D.C.—The Council for Advancement and Support of Education has launched a search for a vice president of education to succeed Norma Walker, who will retire in July after 34 years with the association.

Walker first came to CASE in 1982, serving in a number of positions of increasing responsibility until 2001, when she was appointed vice president of advancement programs. The change from vice president of advancement programs to vice president of education in the recently launched search reflects a title refinement.

Under Walker's leadership, CASE has significantly expanded the scope of its professional development conferences and webinars, awards programs and affiliated student advancement program (CASE ASAP), says Sue Cunningham, president of CASE.

"Not only has Norma guided the growth of these and many other CASE programs and services, but she has also encouraged and stewarded many of our members to become avid volunteers for CASE," Cunningham says. "Thousands of volunteers give back to their profession each year by serving in a wide range of roles with CASE, including board members, commissioners, faculty, speakers and authors. Norma's enthusiasm and camaraderie have played a significant role in engaging our members around the world."

Cunningham notes that the right candidate for the vice president of education will build on this tradition and have an excellent opportunity to provide strategic direction and support for a strong international association.

"Within the next few months, CASE will complete a year-long strategic planning process. The new vice president, as part of the senior leadership team at CASE, will play a vital role in helping us develop a bold and ambitious strategic plan for CASE," Cunningham says. "It's an exciting time to be a part of CASE as we envision our future and build on our strong tradition of providing the highest quality in products and services to our members."

The deadline for applications is April 11. Interested individuals should visit the CASE Career Central for more information on this position.
