URMIA President

This year, the Leadership Development Committee and board of directors has made the decision to extend Chauncey Fagler (our current President) for an additional term. The board did not make this decision lightly, but feels it appropriate for two primary reasons:

  • Continuity is important right now, given the unknown situations impacting our member institutions and the associated financial challenges for URMIA. We feel that Chauncey's steady, consistent leadership will be important to help URMIA weather this storm and continue to serve our members.
  • Chauncey has missed many of the benefits of being President, such as travel to partner associations and hosting in-person board meetings. Our Annual Conference culminates the experience, and our virtual conference won't give him the opportunity to experience what previous presidents have.

Because of this, we will not seek nominations for President this year. We thank Chauncey for his willingness to dedicate another year of service to URMIA, and to Courtney for agreeing to continue as President-elect for a second year.
