SubjectPresentations for Selection of Executive Search Firms to Conduct the Chancellor Search
Recommended ActionThe Board will receive presentations by firms who responded to the Executive Consultant Request for Proposal to assist in the recruitment of the Chancellor for Riverside Community College District and ask questions regarding the search process.

Background Narrative:

In the case of a Chancellor vacancy the Board of Trustees established, under BP/AP 2431, a procedure for a search process to fill the vacancy. The procedure states that the Board of Trustees in consultation with the Vice Chancellor, Diversity and Human Resources may employ a search consultant to assist with the hiring process and recruit candidates. And, that the Diversity and Human Resources Department will solicit proposals from executive search firms to assist the Board in filling the open position. After review of the proposals, the Board will select a firm to conduct the Chancellor search.

As directed by the Board at the June 18th board meeting, the District invited Requests for Proposals (RFP) for consideration in the selection of an Executive Search Consultant to assist the District in the process of recruitment and selection of a Chancellor. Six search firms were invited to submit a proposal to perform Executive Search Consultant Services. The RFP was also advertised in the Press Enterprise on July 9th and 16th. The following three firms responded to the RFP and will provide a brief presentation to the Board and answer questions.
