Board,

Attached is the recording from the meeting with SCION Executive Search (
https://scionexecutivesearch.com/).  A big thanks to Claudia and Dawn who
joined me as well.  Here are some of the notes I took:


   - Work with a lot of membership based organization
   - Been around for ~12 years
   - Worked with organizations of many sizes
   - People from SCION are all involved with non-profits
   - Main company is SCION Staffing, which does tech and corporate staffing
   at the executive level
   - Isaac has a legal degree
   - Has led over 500 searches
   - Services:
   -
      - Retained executive searches
      -
         - Meetings to make sure description is good and set clear
         expectations
         - Go out through network to create pool
         - Evaluate individuals
         - Assist in showing top candidates and why


Job Description
Great start
Get in more strategy and more goals
Missing more global things

Would “passionately” be interested in helping us lead this search.
Know we could find an exceptional ED
Have done a lot of this
Can have hundreds of candidates for a job like this
Only thing not included is criminal background check fee (billed exact cost
- few hundred dollars max)
Costs for candidate travel, if required
Have their own resume platform (Bullhorn)
Average salary is between $115k-135k for a similar position
Run public recruitment for 2-3 months.  Prefer 3 months and then submit
talent back.  Do expedite searches for 2 months publicly.  Some
conversations needed beforehand (5-7 of most influential people).
Lower scale guarantee is 6 months, upper is 1 year
Methods: Check website for 10-step process.

I, personally, came away with a good feeling about them and their ability
to lead this search on our behalf.  Given that we all have other
commitments, I think that having a partner like this to drive our search
would be well worth the money.  They will have a formal proposal out to me
by the end of the day.
