It is with very mixed feelings that we announce the retirement of Barb Geier, our ACDA-MN Executive Assistant effective July 1, 2017. Barb has brilliantly and confidently served our organization specifically as registrar for Summer Dialogue and State Conference, along with managing the audition and selection process for our honor choir program that now involves over 2400 students in six honor choirs per season. In addition, she has supported and provided dedicated leadership to the state office of Executive Director in numerous other capacities as needed. In her retirement letter she states:
I am excited about my impending retirement, but wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all for all of the opportunities I have experienced working for our organization.
We wish Barb and her husband Paul fulfilling years ahead as they transition to full-time retirement.
ACDA-MN will formally recognize Barb during the Summer Dialogue banquet this coming August.
The ACDA-MN Board of Directors has determined that the time frame to name a successor for the part-time position of Executive Assistant is as follows:
February 1 – position posting
April 1 – application deadline
May 1 – appointment and transition
July 1 – assume duties
Stay tuned as more details will be posted in The Daily Beat.
