Gather the information you need from your key constituents regarding your organization’s current capacity and future needs through BoardSource’s Executive Search Needs Assessment. This information, along with a snapshot of your outgoing CEO/executive director’s strengths and weaknesses, will help shape your search for a new CEO/executive director.

Most organizations choose to ask board members and key or senior staff members to participate in the survey. Some organizations include key donors. Typically, an in-depth interview based on the questions in the survey is used to get the perspective of the outgoing CEO/executive director.
