I look forward to seeing this group come together on the important task of determining the future of our college’s leadership.” When the finalists are selected in February, staff, faculty and community members will have the opportunity to meet with the candidates and provide input. The board hopes to announce a new president in the spring of 2008.However, if the process takes longer than expected, Spuhler’s retirement could be postponed until December 2008.In their June meeting, the CMC Board of Trustees developed a list of preferred attributes that they will seek in the college’s eighth president.
