Executive Director Hiring Checklist

Hiring an executive director is one of the most important tasks a board will ever undertake. If you are a board member or chair with little hiring experience, you are in good company. We’ve created these overview checklists to support board members and hiring committees in the hiring process. We encourage you to use these in conjunction with TREC’s Transitions in Leadership toolkit.

TREC is committed to providing new and pertinent information, tools, and samples to meet your Human Resources (HR) needs. Please note that this resource is not intended to be all-inclusive; we make every effort to present thorough and accurate information. However, numerous federal, state and local laws and regulations may vary regarding some of the issues; we encourage all organizations to review local laws and regulations and seek legal counsel when implementing new HR policies and procedures.
