Ambassador Jeffrey Davidow will retire from his position as president of the Institute of the Americas at the end of his second four-year term in May, announced David Weaver, chairman of the board of directors.

Weaver praised Davidow for injecting new vitality into the Institute’s programs, expanding its profile and credibility throughout the Americas and turning it into the premier center for Latin American-focused activities on the West Coast.

Thousands of professionals in Latin America, the United States and Canada have attended programs organized by Davidow and the staff that were designed to promote rational and fair government policies in the region.

The application process for Ambassador Davidow’s successor will begin in the coming weeks, according to Weaver, who said information is on the Institute’s website.
