Earlier today the Senate unanimously confirmed Patrick Corvington as the new CEO for the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS). 

A press release from the Corporation today said:

Patrick Corvington brings more than twenty years of leadership and expertise on key issues facing the nonprofit sector including social innovation, evaluation, and nonprofit capacity building to the Corporation. Corvington’s field experience coupled with his wide-ranging management experience will help the Corporation achieve higher levels of impact, innovation, and effectiveness. He most recently served as a Senior Associate at the Annie E. Casey Foundation.

Read full press release here and Corvington’s bio here.

In addition to the Senate’s support for Corvington, there is overwhelming support among the service community for his appointment.  In January, Voices for National Service, ServiceNation, and America Forward spearheaded a joint letter — signed by more than 100 service organizations — to Majority Leader Reid, Minority Leader McConnell, Chairman Harkin, and Ranking Member Enzi asking the Senate to “move expeditiously to approve” Corvington’s nomination to be the CEO.

ServeNext.org congratulates Patrick, CNCS, and the entire service field, and thanks the Senate for its unanimous decision!
