Director Search Service
Choosing a new director is one of the most important decisions a board will ever make.
The search process can be difficult, time consuming and fraught with legal and political pitfalls. But, the Illinois Association of Park Districts can guide you through that process and help you choose the best candidate for your agency.
Boards that hire a director who is not up to the task harm the agency and the agency's constituents. Why not rely on the seasoned experts at the IAPD to bring highly qualified professional candidates right to your door?
The Illinois Association of Park Districts' Director Search Service helps boards attract outstanding professionals to serve as the chief executive of their agencies. The IAPD has conducted more than 110 director searches in Illinois and throughout the country.
Working closely with our director search clients to find top notch leadership that best fits each agency's needs is a valuable IAPD membership service. Why not take advantage of it? The IAPD knows boards and their concerns. We know the professionals in the field. We truly care about each individual search. While other firms are primarily profit driven, we are driven by the goal of attaining the best, most qualified candidates who will lead Illinois' park districts, forest preserves, conservation and recreation agencies into a successful future. That is why we offer AFFORDABLE fees. It is in our interest, and that of the Illinois park district system, to find the best professionals possible to lead our agencies.
