NAACP Launching Search for New Leader

Tuesday, 10 Sep 2013 07:31 AM

NAACP leaders say the next president of the nation's largest and oldest civil rights group needs to be energetic, charismatic and willing to make a personal sacrifice.

The group's board is beginning its search for a successor to outgoing President and CEO Benjamin Jealous, who announced this week that he'll step down at the end of the year. The NAACP board is forming a search committee and plans to meet in late October to plan for the leadership change.

Board members say leading a group with 64 board members and a long history is a job that requires a unique set of skills.

Chairman Roslyn Brock said the group plans to continue fighting for voting rights, health care, a higher minimum wage and immigration reform.
