Board Training - When You Need It!
Preparing the board to successfully manage a transition is the first step in a successful process. Whether you want to plan ahead or have just learned that your Executive Director will be leaving and "the clock is ticking," this two-hour training will prepare your board to:

  • Position the organization to attract the best candidates;
  • Assess capacity to manage the search in-house;
  • Budget appropriately for search and transition
  • Communicate with staff, key stakeholders, and the community; and
  • Identify first steps and next steps.
Schedule a 2-hour training for your board or executive committee at your convenience.


Executive Transitions Toolkit
For organizations with limited resources, MANP's Mission-Driven Executive Transitions Toolkit provides a cost-effective option. This roadmap provides step-by-step guidance to help the board design a thoughtful process to find an executive director who fits the current and future leadership needs of the organization.

This easy-to-follow guide includes 20+ samples and templates. Members pay just $50!


Executive Search Services
Hiring an executive director is one of the top responsibilities of a Board of Directors, and you don't have to go it alone. Outside guidance from a search consultant can be invaluable in:
  • Assessing the organization's strengths, challenges, and strategic leadership needs;
  • Developing clear and compelling job descriptions, job ads, and compensation packages;
  • Designing an effective process to find and attract top talent;
  • Screening candidates; and
  • Supporting the board in selecting the right leader to help the organization thrive!
MANP brings high quality executive search services within reach for more of our members.
