Leadership Changes at NCoC

Ilir Zherka Takes New Post; Sally Prouty Appointed Interim CEO of NCoC

Following three successful years at the helm of NCoC, Ilir Zherka will become executive director of the the Alliance for International Exchange . We are pleased to announce that he will be succeeded by Sally Prouty, who will serve as Interim CEO of NCoC.

During Ilir’s tenure, NCoC issued 29 Civic Health Initiative (CHI) reports; launched the Service Year Exchange in partnership with Aspen and Be the Change – a bold effort to bring together candidates, sponsors, and funders for service year opportunities; launched the Civic 50 and Civic Data Challenge; and led three very successful Annual Conferences. We thank Ilir for his dedication and exemplary leadership.

Sally Prouty’s many years of experience as a nonprofit executive will be a key asset in continuing to move NCoC – and its mission of active civic engagement – forward. Sally led the work of the Corps Network for nearly 10 years. Most recently, she served as Interim Director of PACE, Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement. In the coming year, she will lead NCoC as it re-positions itself following its successful launch of the Service Year Exchange.

Sally will lead the NCoC team in its continuing role of publishing civic health reports and preparing for the Annual Conference on Citizenship, as well as working with the Board of Directors in formulating new initiatives to fulfill NCoC’s congressional mandate, in partnership with individuals and organizations throughout the citizenship and service fields.

Following transition planning, Sally assumes her role on December 15. She can be reached at sprouty@ncoc.net.
