Former museum head Ron Denman is stepping back into the position temporarily as they seek a new director.

Chilliwack Museum and Archives is seeking a new director.

Former director Ron Denman has stepped into his old role temporarily, while the board proceeds with hiring a new person.

The director position at the museum became vacant when Deborah Hudson resigned last month “to pursue other interests,” according to the announcement in the museum newsletter.

“The job will be posted this week, and it closes on the 27th of September,” said Denman.

He’s been working on budgeting and planning at the museum on Spadina Avenue, as well as projects like The Chilliwack Progress Digitization.

But Denman could not shed any light on why Hudson left the job.

The Museum and Archives is governed by the Chilliwack Museum and Historical Society, and the search for suitable candidates is being undertaken by its board trustees.

The Museum director “creates an environment that lets the museum and archives thrive,” according to the job posting, such as digitizing the photo collection.

“As team leader, you are able to coordinate the talents of the staff and volunteers to create a dynamic, community-engaged museum and archives. You know how to develop short and long term plans, have experience managing budgets and have job experiences that have offered increasingly challenging growth opportunities.”

Resumes, with references can be forwarded to hr@chilliwackmuseum.ca . Closing date is September 27, 2014.
