Herbst has scheduled the first committee meeting for Nov. 22, at which the members will be formally charged with their roles and responsibilities in conducting the search.
The committee will develop a position description, place announcements in appropriate national media and conduct on-campus interviews.

Mike Cottrell, member, NGCSU Foundation Board of Trustees and chairman and owner of Cottrell Inc.;
Harrison Davis, associate professor of counseling;
Jeff Davis, associate vice president for facilities;

Jim Minter, former editor of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution;
Ed Nix, president of the NGCSU Foundation;
Linda Sumpter, president of the NGCSU Alumni Association.
Executive search firm Greenwood/Asher & Associates of Miramar Beach, Fla., will be assisting in the search.
The national search will be conducted to replace President David Potter, who announced in September his plans to step down at the end of the school year as he transitions into retirement. President Potter took office at NGCSU in January 2005.
