The National School Boards Association (NSBA), a federation of 49 state school boards associations and the territory of the Virgin Islands, has initiated a national search for an Executive Director to replace its retiring Executive Director and CEO, Thomas J. Gentzel. Vetted Solutions, an executive search firm that represents leading associations and nonprofit organizations, was retained to conduct the search. NSBA works with and through its member state associations to advocate for public education on behalf of more than 90,000 local school board members and almost 50 million public school children.
President ElizaBeth “Beth” Branham said, “The NSBA Board of Directors has authorized the formation of a search committee, which is comprised of members of the executive committee of the Board of Directors, state school boards associations executive directors and a representative from NSBA’s past presidents group.” The search committee will work with Vetted Solutions to develop the essential qualities needed to succeed in the job and recruit a viable pool of candidates who meet the critical capabilities that will enable NSBA to continue to fulfill its important mission.
By the end of January, the search committee expects to post the executive position profile on the NSBA, Vetted Solutions and relevant websites. The profile will also be shared with NSBA’s members through online communication channels.
Any inquiries concerning the search should be directed to the Vetted Solutions search team at 202-544-4749 or NSBAEDsearch@vettedsolutions.com.
