Executive Director Search

ICAA Leadership Evolution – Update:

Ifetayo Cultural Arts Academy (ICAA) recently engaged the Support Center to conduct a search for an Executive Director.  Katharine Harris, a  Support Center Consultant will work closely with the Board of Directors to identify the right leader for the future based on the needs of the organization. Ifetayo chose the Support Center after the successful placement of Ms. Wendy Reynoso as  Interim Executive Director during this transition.  The first step of the process was an organizational survey which solicited feedback from multiple stakeholders including Staff, Alumni, Core Members, Elders and Board Members.

The Support Center has been helping to strengthen the leadership and management of nonprofits in the New York City metro region for over 30 years.  Their approach to Executive Search is rooted in the belief that leadership transition offers a pivotal moment to build the capacity of an organization, and they are committed to supporting our organization during and after this change of leadership.

Following an evaluation of Ifetayo’s strengths, challenges and needs and the development of a position description, we are currently focused on circulating the job announcement, after which the search committee and Ms. Harris will begin screening and interviews of qualified candidates.

Please see below the position description and share with your network.  Interested candidates should contact
