Arts Margit Rankin Is Stepping Down as Executive Director of Seattle Arts & Lectures

The press release hasn’t gone out yet, but here’s what it will say: Margit Rankin, the executive director of Seattle Arts & Lectures, is stepping down. We just spoke on the phone. She’s stepping down for personal reasons and doesn’t have any particular next career move planned. She’s looking forward to some time off.
After four years of her leadership, the organization appears to be more stable than ever. She is an excellent administrator. The lecture series hasn’t changed much under Rankin’s leadership, but SAL’s several educational programs have grown. (Rankin’s background is in academia.)
A representative from the search committee that will find her replacement couldn’t immediately be reached. I’ll post the press release here as soon as I get it.
