D AVID EISNER, president and chief executive officer of the National Constitution Center since November 2009, announced Friday that he'll step down Oct. 31.
"It's the right time," Eisner said. "I got some big ideas."
Eisner, who oversaw the center's FREEDOM! Initiative - an effort to increase awareness of the center around the nation - said only that his next step would be in the realm of civic engagement with a focus on strengthening the culture of democracy.
"I feel so grateful and honored to have been able to lead such an amazing institution," Eisner said.
