A conversation between members of the Shoreline Community
College Board of Trustees has begun the journey of finding a successor to
outgoing President Lee Lambert.
On Friday, May 17, Lambert was named as chancellor at Pima
Community College. His first day on the job at the Tucson, Ariz., school will
be July 1. On Monday, May 20, 2013, Shoreline’s trustees met for what was
originally scheduled to be an executive session, but amended to include
an open, non-action, sharing of thoughts and concerns.
The conversation included questions about whether or not to
use a search firm, what skills and talents would be needed, timing of a hiring
and potential implications and impacts. While
no decisions were made on a succession process, there was consensus on the need
to stay on track with the current strategic initiatives.
The board continued with the executive session, followed by
an open comment period. The trustees are scheduled to meet again Wednesday in a
regular session, including a study session at 3 p.m. and regular session at 4
