The New Jersey Council for the Humanities (NJCH) announces that David Miller will be Interim Director for the organization while the Board of Directors searches for the next Executive Director. The former Executive Director, Briann Greenfield, Ph.D., stepped down from her position earlier in the month to take on the Executive Director role at Harriet Beecher Stowe Center in Hartford, Connecticut.
A resident of Hightstown, Miller has extensive experience working in the arts and cultural sector of the state. Early on in his career, he was an administrator with the Burlington County Cultural Heritage Commission before joining the New Jersey State Council on the Arts (NJSCA) as a Program Officer. In 2001, Miller was appointed to the post of Executive Director from which he led some of its most significant advances. In 2007, he was named Executive Vice President for the Foundation for the New Jersey Public Broadcasting, Inc. After that, Miller accepted the position of Executive Director & CEO at Grounds for Sculpture, Inc. Since 2013, he has worked as an independent consultant with arts, cultural, and social service organizations on numerous strategic planning and grant-related projects. Miller’s knowledge and skills, especially in regards to nonprofit operations, will guide the work of NJCH during this time of transition.
