MLH to promote Robertson
The Mammoth Lakes Housing Board of Directors met on June 11 to discuss the recruitment of a new Executive Director for the organization.
Current Executive Director Jennifer Halferty recently submitted her 60-day notice for formal resignation.
Halferty was elected last week to the Mono County Board of Supervisors.
The MLH Board was presented with three plans to find someone to fill Halferty’s shoes.
The first option entailed hiring from within the organization, with the current candidate being Patricia Robertson, who has five years of experience working for the organization.
The second option was an in-house recruitment, advertising the position locally.
This implied advertising the executive position with support from the Mammoth Lakes Human Resource Management to find a local candidate qualified for the position. When this happened in the past, the process took 10 weeks and cost around $4,000. If applied to the current situation it is projected to take 12 to 16 weeks for the position to be secured and cost between $4,000 and $6,000.
The last option entailed the use of outside recruitment firms which would conduct a national search.
