Welcome to NNSC

The Network of Nonprofit Search Consultants is comprised of some of the leading nonprofit search consultants in the United States and Canada.

The purpose of the Network is to provide a forum for the development of best practices through the participation of executive search consultants who conduct retained services exclusively or predominantly for nonprofit organizations, institutions and non-governmental organizations.  Individual members of the Network are nonprofit executive search consultants who meet the high standards and membership criteria set by the NNSC.

The goal of the Network is ultimately focused on and reflective of the goals of the nonprofit organizations we serve, that is, to ensure that the best leadership is in place so that the needs of others can be well served.  There is a special expertise required to recruit such inspired leadership and Network members are continually expanding their knowledge and experience to benefit such organizations.

Through the continuing dialogue among members as well as their efforts to develop more effective nonprofit search practices, the Network strives to become the leading professional association promoting and supporting the practice of nonprofit executive search.

If you represent a nonprofit organization as a member of a governing board, chief executive or human resources officer, and you wish to Request a Proposal from members of the Network, please be assured that your request will be treated in strict confidence and with dispatch.
