Few events in the life of an organization will raise stakes—and stress levels—as high as a transition in senior leadership.

Finding the right candidate that meets your culture and providing a seamless transition for the successor poses complex and significant challenges. Hastily hiring a replacement may result in loss of productivity, breaks in service to your members or possibly long-lasting consequences difficult to reverse.

TSAE’s Executive Director Search offers a systematic and collaborative approach to defining the realities of the position and the unique environment in which it operates. Because we focus solely on executive searches for associations, we understand the importance of finding a candidate that fits the organization’s culture.  

Our experience will help your search committee determine the type of leader you need, be it someone from within your industry or an experienced association executive. Our services are custom-built based on your needs and budget.   

We have three options to meet your budget and needs, from a toolkit to full search facilitation and interviewing assistance.
