The Music Director Search Team has been continuing with our process of searching for ERUUF’s new Music Director. In the late summer and fall, we established the position description and identified outreach strategies in order to recruit a diverse range of candidates. We continue to receive a number of applications from qualified candidates; we have developed a timeline and a process to identify the candidates that best fit the values and characteristics defined in the position description.
To date, we have received 20 applications; we are pleased that our assessment process has enabled us to thoughtfully but efficiently eliminate those who are least suited to our fellowship. We will continue to accept new applications until the beginning of February when we will narrow the pool of applicants down to our final candidates. The first phase of our multi-stage interview process will be Zoom interviews and intensive reference checks with our top candidates. We are currently on target to meet our goal of announcing our new Music Director by March 31.
