Cara Pavlicek is a Director member of the International City/County Management Association (ICMA). Last night, Don McEachern, CEO of North Star Destination Strategies, mentioned in his presentation that he spoke annually at the ICMA conference.
This may explain why North Star Destination Strategies was recommended by staff. It remains to be seen whether or not Pavlicek’s departure will effect NSDS’ hiring.
Sources: CP’s ZoomInfo saying she is a Director is, I have been advised, not correct. This is also where I got her work history and dates.
