Announcement: Executive Director, Alpha Omega Alpha
After many years of distinguished service as Executive Secretary of Alpha Omega Alpha (AΩA) and editor of The Pharos, Edward (Ted) D. Harris Jr., MD has indicated his desire to retire. Accordingly, AΩA is interested in receiving inquiries from those who might be interested in fulfilling these important roles.
The Executive Director (ED) of AΩA has dual responsibilities as chief administrative officer of the society and as Editor of the Pharos. The AΩA Board of Directors is seeking preferably one person who is a member of AΩA to fulfill both of these functions. The ED must have a strong belief in and commitment to the mission of AΩA and have a record of active service to the organization. She/he must have excellent leadership and management skills, the ability to interact with a diverse group of professionals in medical academia, and excellent literary skills. Currently, the ED devotes approximately 65% of his time to AΩA administration and programs with the remaining 35% devoted to The Pharos. Administrative support for the ED includes 4.25 Full Time Equivalent (FTE) employees.
The ED serves as an ex officio member of the Executive Committee of the AΩA Board of Directors. As such the ED must be in close contact with the Executive Committee and the Board. The ED is responsible for implementing the shared vision of the Board and the ED.
As Editor of The Pharos, the ED oversees the work of the full-time managing editor who is primarily responsible for handling accepted manuscripts, managing journal production, and interacting with the publisher and outside contractors.
