Chair, Board of Directors, WRAG
President and CEO, Consumer Health Foundation
On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am pleased to share the position announcement for the next president of the Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers. We have partnered with Nonprofit Professionals Advisory Group to launch a national search that will end with a final selection by spring 2019. The next president will succeed current president Tamara Copeland, who announced in July that she will retire after 12 years of brilliant leadership. Ms. Copeland will continue serving in her role until the new president has been named.
Ms. Copeland leaves WRAG in a strong position both financially and programatically. We are seeking a new leader who will build on WRAG’s momentum as a leading voice in the Washington, DC region on issues such as racial equity and continue to galvanize our membership base of independent, family, corporate, and community foundations, CSR offices, donor advised funds, philanthropic advisors, and philanthropic support organizations.
The search committee is being led by Meyer Foundation President Nicky Goren and also includes WRAG board members Amy Owen (Community Foundation for Loudon and Northern Fauquier Counties) and Craig Pascal (BB&T) as well as Doug Duncan (Leadership Greater Washington) and Hanh Le (Weissberg Foundation). Please share the position with strong potential candidates or send nominations to WRAGfirstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions about the search, please contact: Callie Carroll, email@example.com or 202-265-0578.
