By Greg Stoddard, FCPE President
This will be the last opportunity for me to communicate with you in my role as President of the Board for the Foundation for ACPE. It has been my great honor and privilege to serve ACPE in this capacity for the last four years. During my time as President, the board of the FCPE has worked steadily to restore trust and assure that FCPE is fully aligned with ACPE as its financial steward and fundraising arm. At our recent meeting in Atlanta, the FCPE board continued to advance the agenda of alignment. We voted to appoint Trace Haythorn to serve as Executive Director for both ACPE and FCPE. We, along with many of you, have been impressed with Trace's leadership and vision. His experience in the development field serves both arms of our organization well.
This fall I appointed new members to the FCPE Board Membership committee. The committee chaired by Robin Brown Haithco, FCPE board secretary, included ACPE President David Johnson, Parkland Foundation CEO and FCPE board member David Krause. They also consulted with Trace Haythorn and Agnes Bourne, FCPE board member. In addition to bringing a slate of officers and board members for 2015, Robin's committee made recommendations for changing the FCPE's policy on terms of service. On their recommendation, the FCPE board has established a two-year term limit for FCPE board president, and a three year term limit for FCPE board members beginning with the 2015 member class. I am pleased to inform you that Stuart Plummer has been elected by the FCPE board to a term as President of the Board starting in 2015. All FCPE board appointments are confirmed by the ACPE Board of Representatives by policy.
