PMA Announces Interim Executive Director
February 8, 2021
Dear PMA Community,
We are pleased to announce that Carla Harris has been selected by the PMA Board to serve as Interim Executive Director of the Pilates Method Alliance.
Harris will serve the PMA in the coming months as we initiate our search to fill a permanent Executive Director position.
As Interim ED, Harris will oversee all administrative and operational work of the organization, guiding our efforts as we work to enhance member value, celebrate the diversity of the Pilates community, create a highly functioning and representative board, and support PMA staff.
Harris has a 20+ year history helping organizations serve clients better by focusing on the dynamics of workplace culture and cultivating synergy across teams. As CEO and Managing Director of The People Institute, she leads the charge to shift the focus from the bottom line to the people who form the heartbeat of any organization.
“My goal is to work with the PMA staff and board to initiate the good work it has committed to doing, operationalize a culture of excellence and build in accountability,” said Harris.
“It will take time and hard work, but I believe the PMA can become the kind of organization that delivers great value and honors the uniqueness of its members and staff.”
Harris will begin her tenure with a series of Listening Tours to hear the ideas, concerns, and comments from members and use these to guide PMA decision-making going forward. The PMA Listening Tours are for PMA members only. We’ll post a recap of the tours after they’re completed. To learn more about Harris, see the link in our profile.
