The National Precast Concrete Association is seeking an entrepreneurial leader to guide an experienced professional staff in the fast-paced environment of a national trade association. The successful candidate will have the vision and creativity to continue the growth and prosperity of an association with a long track record of innovative programming, a world-class trade show and the industry’s largest certification program.

Due to the retirement of its longtime chief executive, the National Precast Concrete Association is seeking a new President. The President partners with a 16-member Board of Directors and 27 staff in the Carmel, Indiana headquarters to serve more than 900 member companies in all 50 states and eight Canadian provinces. With an $8.3 million budget and more than $3 million in reserves, NPCA’s leadership seeks an individual who will continue the entrepreneurial approach to its business model to ensure that NPCA remains a strong voice in the industry and an indispensable resource to its membership.

The new NPCA president will function as a high-profile executive leader, which requires sophistication in association and transformation leadership, advocacy, people development, and the dynamics of high-performance governance and strategic execution. NPCA has sufficient resources to execute its strategic vision, and like any organization, its focus will not meet the needs of every individual or opinion. Diplomacy, empathetic listening, and authentic caring about members’ opinions and input is at the core of being a successful NPCA strategic leader.

Desirable qualities include a track record of commitment, experience building an organization and a board culture, stability evident in the career arc, strength and resilience in overcoming adversity; the ability to interpret complex specifications, laws, and government regulations; understanding of small, family-owned businesses; and honesty and trustworthiness, with a conservative management style and approach. Experience leading in a fiscally responsible manner, while overseeing the diverse functions of HR, finance, technology, marketing, membership, meetings, advocacy, education, certifications, and standard-setting are desired. Engagement with government agencies, building strategic alliances and a successful entrepreneurial track record will be essential to the next president’s success. Willingness to travel extensively is required.

The anticipated start date is January 2, 2020. Compensation is negotiable and commensurate with the size and scope of the association. Advanced degrees and a CAE designation, or willingness to attain the CAE, are preferred. Five or more years of leadership experience in associations or not-for-profits is preferred.
