The Board of Directors of the New Brunswick Association for Community Living (NBACL) has begun the search for an Executive Director. To assure that the process is thorough and comprehensive, the executive search firm of Knightsbridge Robertson Surrette (KBRS) has been engaged to assist us. The search will continue for approximately six weeks.
NBACL has chosen to engage a search firm to reflect the organization’s commitment to a competitive and transparent process. KBRS will work in concert with the Board’s Search Committee to develop marketing materials and to identify, recruit, and assess qualified individuals from across the country. KBRS’s Jeff Forbes and Laura Godsoe are the lead consultants on this search.
“Selecting NBACL’s next Executive Director may be the single most important responsibility we have as a Board and we are committed to ensuring that the best leader is selected to head up our great organization.”
The Board has had exceptional leadership over the years from both Krista Carr, our former Executive Director who went on to become Executive VP of the Canadian Association for Community Living in April of 2017, and Danny Soucy who was chosen as the acting Executive Director of NBACL to ensure a smooth transition as we launched into our 60th Anniversary celebrations. Both leave a tremendous legacy within our provincial organization and communities around the province, most importantly, for the individuals and families whose lives have been touched by the work of NBACL.
“The Board appreciates and values the leadership that Danny has offered our organization as interim Executive Director over the last year, as well as his commitment to ensure a smooth transition to the next Executive Director,” said Moira.
The Board recognizes that its strength as an organization comes from the support and interest of a community of passionate individuals who are committed to achieving inclusion for persons with an intellectual or developmental disability. The Search Committee will conduct a search that respects equity and inclusion with the goal of identifying an Executive Director who is able to work collaboratively with the Board, community and government stakeholders, and with our members, to build on the strengths of our organization and continue our success.
We appreciate your support in this endeavor and invite you to connect with Laura Godsoe at KBRS to discuss the search, recommend a potential candidate, or indicate your own personal interest in the opportunity. She can be reached at 902.421.7544 or firstname.lastname@example.org.”
