Now Available: Forum President and Chief Executive Officer Position Profile

Dear colleagues:

We are happy to provide, as promised, a brief update on the search for the next President and Chief Executive Officer. The search committee has released the final position profile which is now available on The Forum’s website.

The position profile was developed based on input provided through the online survey and conversations with the Board, Council, and follow-up interviews with a broadly representative group of The Forum’s membership. The profile outlines The Forum’s many strengths, lists some of the key opportunities and challenges facing the next President, and captures the experiences and qualities the Board seeks in an ideal candidate. Our search consultants from Storbeck/Pimentel have already begun to share the profile with potential candidates for the position as well as with sources who can suggest names of other talented individuals who may be an excellent match for The Forum.

The committee and its consultants seek to build a strong and diverse pool of candidates. We encourage you to share the position profile with colleagues around the country who may be a good match for this position or who may be able to suggest strong candidates. We also encourage you to send the names of potential candidates directly to our search consultants by email at They will follow up on all suggestions that come from within The Forum’s community.

Thank you for your time and your interest in the search as a community, and for the input and suggestions you have contributed to date. We are excited to be moving on to the next phase of the search and will update you on our progress again soon.
