SOUTH HADLEY – The South Hadley Selectboard invites interested residents to apply to serve on the South Hadley Town Administrator Screening Committee. 

“We look forward to having a resident participate in the process of selecting South Hadley’s next town administrator,” said Jeff Cyr, chair of the Selectboard. “It is important to us that residents are involved throughout the screening process.”

The duties of the seven-member Town Administrator Screening Committee include reviewing résumés of applicants, selecting approximately six to nine semi-finalist candidates, interviewing those candidates, and selecting a total of three to five finalists to forward to the Selectboard for interviews. 

It is anticipated that the members of the Town Administrator Screening Committee will need to attend a maximum of four meetings to fulfill their committee obligations. Once finalists’ names are presented to the Selectboard, the Town Administrator Screening Committee will have completed its mission.

“Town Administrator Screening Committee members will have a critical role in determining finalists for this important position,” said Sarah Etelman, vice-chair of the Selectboard. “We are pleased to be able to call upon residents’ experience, knowledge, and insight.”
