York County seeks temporary director for culture museums

York County is seeking applicants for interim executive director of York County's Culture and Heritage Museums.

Responsibilities include managing all museum activities and resources, including finance and administration, operations and staff supervision.

Applicants must have a bachelor's degree in art, the humanities, history, science, natural history or a related academic or administrative field from a four-year college or university, and should have administrative experience as well as museum-related work experience.

Tuesday is the deadline to apply.

The position opened up following Van Shields' resignation, effective Friday. He served as the Culture and Heritage Museums' executive director for 15 years.

The Culture and Heritage Commission, which oversees the museums, hopes to fill his position with a temporary interim director until they can fill the position permanently.

"We're looking for somebody to take over the reigns long enough for us to do a thorough search," commission chairman David Plexico said.

The position pays a salary of $2,000 biweekly, with medical and dental benefits and paid holidays.
