Seeking Input for Executive Director Search

The Sierra Club's Executive Director Transition Committee, which I chair, has retained the executive serach firm Isaacson, Miller. The principals on our search will be David Bellshaw and Karen Wilcox -- here's a description of their simple, but disciplined search process.

The search is divided into five phases:

  • Understanding the Challenge,
  • Networking & Screening of Prospective Candidates,
  • Narrowing the Field,
  • Selecting Finalists and Checking References, and
  • The Final Choice. 

In the initial phase, the Executive Director Transition Committee — assisted by its search consultants from Isaacson, Miller — is soliciting input from the Sierra Club community regarding expectations for the new executive eirector and their perspectives on the profile of an ideal candidate. This information will be confidential, shared only with the committee and the recruiters, and it will help inform the writing and review of the position profile. I am asking you to help.

Please share your input through the following Sierra Club Executive Director Search Survey:

Thank you in advance for your participation. The survey closes May 31 at 11:45 pm ET.

We also welcome suggestions of possible candidates, either through this survey or directly to the search firm at sierra@imsearch.com

Once a timeline is finalized for the overall search process, we will pass that information along to you.
