Posted in News on December 13, 2010

Hal David has resigned his position as Chairman of the Songwriters Hall of Fame. “I feel the goals I set when I accepted the Songwriters Hall of Fame chairmanship 10 years ago have largely been accomplished, including the establishment of a bricks and mortar home at the Songwriters Hall of Fame Gallery at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles,” the Academy Award-winning lyricist and 1972 Hall of Fame inductee said. “Therefore, today I am announcing my decision to step down as Chairman. I look forward to devoting all of my energies to my first love, songwriting.”

The Songwriters Hall of Fame Board named David Chairman Emeritus and established a search committee to select his successor.
