LHA Executive Director David Hay, hired in March 2007 to oversee LHA activities, has left to take a position at Davenport University. I asked him about his plans: “While I may be leaving the LHA executive director position, I plan to remain an active member of the Indiana chapter and work on our state byway designation, the 2009 conference, and other Indiana-related projects.”
Bob Lichty, past LHA president who was on the director selection committee, told me, “This is a disappointment so soon. David was a good choice for the job, but it is understandable when he got such a better offer. It is my hope we do a search and find an even better person for the role, maybe with a bit more focus on fund-raising.” For now, the office will utilize an office manager. Here is the job posting:
