BALTIMORE (AP) — The NAACP has selected a former House of Representatives clerk as an interim president and CEO while the organization seeks a new leader.

The nation’s largest and oldest civil rights group announced at its board meeting over the weekend that Lorraine Miller would take the lead during the search. President and CEO Benjamin Jealous announced last month that he will step down at the end of the year. Miller is set to assume day-to-day responsibilities at the Baltimore-based group on Nov. 1.

Miller, now a commercial real estate broker, served as the first African-American clerk of the U.S. House of Representatives from 2007 to 2011. She served as president of the Washington, D.C., branch of the NAACP and has been a member of the national board of directors since 2008.
