ANCHORAGE (AP) -- The head of United Way in Anchorage has resigned.
Dennis McMillian will leave to work full-time as president of the Foraker Group, which provides consulting services, grant assistance, financial management and information technology services to more than 180 organizations in Alaska.
McMillian has 22 years of United Way experience and started with the Anchorage branch in 1992.
United Way is searching nationally for a new president. McMillian's departure will become official when a new boss is hired. Anchorage United Way Chairman Victor Mollozzi said he hoped that would be by April.
United Way of Anchorage helped start the Foraker Group in 2000 and McMillian became president there too.
''I think when we originally put (Foraker) together there was the feeling that Dennis would eventually move into that,'' Mollozzi said. ''It's grown, and it's time to do it.''
