Dakota West Arts Council Executive Director Eileen Walsh has resigned after 10 years.
"The Board thanks Walsh for her tireless work, vision and relationship-building as she looks ahead to spending more time with her family," the board of directors for the nonprofit arts organization said in announcing her resignation, which was effective Thursday.
Board President Andrea Birst is assuming the responsibilities until Walsh's successor is named. An applicant search will begin April 1, with the board hoping to fill the position by June 1.
The board is reviewing the description, responsibilities and requirements for the executive director position. It is holding a meeting for arts organizations to provide feedback, at 5:15 p.m. Wednesday in Meeting Room B at the Bismarck Veterans Memorial Library.
