Announcement of Applications for District Secretary for the MO-ARK Kiwanis District.

Mary Vaughan, current Secretary for the MO-ARK Kiwanis District, has announced her intentions of resigning this position at the end of the 2021-2022 Kiwanis year. Carla O’Brien, 2021-2022 Governor, has appointed Governor-Elect Roy Ockert to chair a committee to help select an individual to fill the position of Secretary. Having accepted this responsibility, a committee of three will review applications, narrow the field to three candidates, interview finalists, and make a recommendation to the Board on February 25, 2022. The Board will make the final appointment to fill this position. Other committee members are Region I Trustee William Dooley and District Treasurer Robin Asher. District Secretary Mary Vaughan will serve as a ex officio member of the committee.

The time frame established is to announce the acceptance of resumes/applications of those interested until January 25, 2022. Applications will be reviewed, and the field narrowed to the top three. Interviews will be conducted during February to reach consensus on the selection and recommendation to the Board by February 20. The Board will act on that recommendation at their Board meeting in Hot Springs on February 25, 2022. The official beginning date for the Secretary is officially October 1, 2022. This will allow time for training and working with Mary Vaughan to become more familiar with the actual duties of the position prior to beginning.
