Interviews begin for Riverboat Foundation
The Washington County Riverboat Foundation (WCRF)Board will begin the interviewing process for two director openings next week.
“We received nine applications,” said WCRF executive assistant Jim Logan. “There were some from Kalona, Riverside and Washington.”
Four of the applications are from the Kalona area. As reported in The Journal’s March 22 edition, the focus would be to find a Kalona representative. The board currently doesn’t have one from there.
There are two main steps in the interview process.
First, candidates will appear before the nomination committee for an interview. Then, if chosen, applicants will appear before the WCRF board for their final interview.
“We haven’t done this process for a while,” Logan said. “I anticipate maybe at June’s meeting the board will do their interviews.”
Once the board has done the interviews, members will move on to making their final decision.
None of the applicants who applied have been on the WCRF board before, Logan said.
Despite the openings, the spring grants award process will go on as planned.
The grants will be awarded at the May 1 meeting at Riverside Casino and Golf Resort’s event center. It is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. The WCRF received 94 grant applications for the spring.
