NEW YORK (AP) — The president of the Metropolitan Museum of Art is stepping down.

Emily Rafferty said Tuesday she will retire at the end of March 2015. She has been president of the museum since January 2005.

Rafferty started working at the museum in 1976, as an administrator in the development department. She later served as vice president for development and senior vice president for external affairs before becoming president.

Rafferty told The Associated Press she thought this would be a good time for a transition, that a number of significant projects have been completed.

Rafferty is also the chairwoman of NYC & Company, the city's tourism agency, and chairwoman of the board of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. She said she hasn't made any decisions about those roles.
