CEO Search Committee Guide

Download Guide

Over the next few years the vast majority of Jewish nonprofits will need to hire new CEOs. Ensuring the right CEO is in place is one of the board's primary duties. Yet many nonprofit boards take an improvisational, ad hoc approach to this task. This guide lays out the known best practices for CEO searches and how they might be applied to the Jewish nonprofit sector.

“Too often boards turn every succession into an emergency because they fail to plan in advance.”

Topics include:
  • Succession planning
  • Taking stock and scoping the role
  • Establishing a search committee
  • Developing the applicant pool
  • Screening candidates
  • Interviews and reference checks
  • Closing the deal and onboarding
  • ...and more.

“The board has one employee: the CEO.”
