The College of Piping and Celtic Performing Arts of Canada in Summerside, Prince Edward Island, has started an official search for a new Executive Director to fill the position left vacant after the untimely death of Scott MacAulay in September of this year.
 
“The Executive Director will play a key role in maintaining and enhancing the world class reputation of our College,” said Ken Gillis, chair of the College’s Board of Directors. “We are confident that this exciting opportunity will attract an individual who will be a good fit for the College as well as the Celtic performing arts community.”
 
Reporting to Gillis, the new Executive Director will be responsible for all educational programming, business and financial planning, administrative functions, and communications and public relations, among other duties.
 
While the list of desirable qualifications does not include piping or drumming, it does include “a strong background and experience in the performing arts.”
 
Additional information is available at the College’s website. The deadline for applications is January 9, 2009.

TIP OF THE DAY
Pipers: Need to manipulate your pipe chanter reed? – use a pen knife or Xacto knife instead of sandpaper. You have much more control on the amount of cane you take off with a knife vs. sandpaper. And it is much better for the cane itself; other woodworkers call this technique “feathering.”
