I'm not referring to just our awesome new ULA trading cards, but to a
NEW ULA DIRECTOR!?
ULA Exec Director Mike Jackman has abandoned the role to become Detroit Bureau Chief. Also, I've had less time to devote to the organization.
What does this mean for the Underground Literary Alliance? Is it time to choose a new overall Director for the team? Discussions are underway. I hope we'll be able to soon announce a general Search for candidates. We should look everywhere, through all aspects of the literary world (including hidden levels of the underground) for possibilities to assume the position of ULA Lead Dog, First among equals.
What I'll be looking for in the individual is understanding of our DIY strategy, ability to work with and motivate others, and total commitment to the ULA's name, mission, and ideals; the willingness to work FOR the team.
This should be the first of many changes. Rebuilding our engine, getting the vehicle up to speed, will take much work. ULA mechanics are working overtime. The ULA Car is being readied.
