Former Pierce College acting President Mary Lee has resigned as chairwoman of the Valley Industry & Commerce Assn., association officials said Wednesday.
Lee, who had been elected chairwoman six months ago, stepped down Feb. 29 because she is no longer affiliated with Pierce College, said Marvin Selter, VICA vice chairman.
An election will be held for a new chairman on Monday at a regularly scheduled meeting of the association's executive committee, Selter said.
Lee resigned as acting president at Pierce after learning she had been passed over by a committee searching for a permanent president.
