Lou Tornatzky has announced that he will be stepping down from his position as Director of the Southern Technology Council (STC), a position he has held since 1993. Tornatzky will be relocating with his family to the West Coast, but will continue to serve as an STC Research Fellow.

STC is seeking to fill the position left vacant by Tornatzky's departure. The Director reports to the Executive Director of STC's parent organization, the Southern Growth Policies Board (SGPB). The STC Director has primary responsibility for building the projects and activities of the Council, but also participates in and leads projects of SGPB as well.

STC fosters cooperative initiatives among regional science and technology organizations, and functions as a forum for information and recommendations about best practices, strategies, policies, and programs. Fifteen southern states, as well as several corporations and non-profit organizations, have representatives on the 40-person Council.

The successful candidate for this position will be an innovative, mission-focused individual with the demonstrated ability to build the organization. A full position description is available on the SSTI web site at www.ssti.org.

Candidates for the position should send a complete resume or vita, including the names and contact information for three references, plus two recent writing samples, to: STC Search Committee, PO Box 12293, Research Triangle Park, NC 27709.
