CEO Search Update
March 8, 2010
Since my last communication in January there has been good progress on the AACC CEO search. Following a rigorous process of review, ranking and interviews of the top applicants, we selected RPA Inc. as the search firm. RPA has experience in searches in the four- and two-year sectors, as well as for association positions. They have developed a time line so that the board can select our next President/CEO in June.
The position has already been advertised and RPA has interviewed AACC Board members and partner organizations in order to finalize the prospectus for the position. The prospectus will be pubished shortly. [NOTE: As of March 18, 2010, the prospectus is available. Click here to view the document in PDF format.] RPA is updating the time line and we will begin to review applications in April.
The Board also requested that RPA conduct a survey to solicit member perspectives on the challenges facing AACC and the characteristics and skill set desired in our next President/CEO that will be used by the board as we review candidates for the position. The Board is really interested in hearing from you. To that end, I request that you complete the short survey. Please complete and return the survey by March 19, 2010.
We also encourage nominations of individuals that you believe would be outstanding candidates for the position.
I will continue to update you periodically as we reach and surpass various milestones in the search process. In the meantime, do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
