link resources to action, strengthening Forsyth County—now and forever.

Search for our Next President

Eight current members and one past member of our governing board comprise the Search Committee to oversee the selection process for the Foundation’s next president. Koya Partners, an executive search firm with a deep commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, has been retained to partner with the Committee in their efforts.

After extensive research with staff, board, and community stakeholders, a Position Profile has been developed to guide both potential applicants and the selection process. We hope that community members will thoughtfully share this information with anyone who may be interested. We will keep the community updated as we move forward to identify a new leader to help maximize our impact in Forsyth County.
