WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- The Urban League of Kansas says its president and chief executive officer has resigned.

The nonprofit group announced Thursday that Chester Daniel resigned Oct. 26 to pursue other opportunities. The organization, which provides education and counseling programs to help improve economic self-reliance, said in a news release that it will hire an interim president at its Nov. 15 meeting.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/UzkGsJ ) Daniel became president of the Wichita-based agency in March 2008.

Linda Merrill-Parman, former chairwoman of the league's board of trustees, said it's not known yet when the search for Daniel's permanent replacement will begin. She also says other options for leading the group could be considered.
