UAMS pick official UPDATE

Posted By on Fri, Mar 20, 2009 at 10:36 AM

The news we brought you first yesterday is now official: The UA Board will meet Tuesday to ratify President B. Alan Sugg's choice of a Georgian, Dr. Daniel Rahn, to be next chancellor of UAMS.

UPDATE: As I'd indicated yesterday, a $700,000 pay package has been negotiated with Rahn. If approved, Rahn would be paid $600,000 in base pay, $100,000 in deferred compensation and a $25,000 housing allowance. The hope is that Rahn will start work July 1, but he may not be able to, a UA spokesman said. The exact start date will be known after Tuesday's meeting.
