Chief Staff Performance Evaluation
The most important job of any volunteer board of directors is to hire, work with, and evaluate the chief staff executive.
Why conduct a formal evaluation for the chief staff executive?
An annual performance evaluation of the chief staff executive:
- provides a platform for the board and the chief staff executive to discuss shared expectations;
- helps the chief staff executive and the association develop and grow; and
- is required by the REALTOR® organization’s insurance policy that covers wrongful termination lawsuits.
Because each association is unique, developing a single standardized evaluation tool is impractical. However, you can use the information in this section as a blueprint for developing an evaluation process that works for your organization.
