Seeking Member Input into PNY's CEO Search

Dear Philanthropy New York Members, 
We're excited to be kicking off the search for Philanthropy New York's new Chief Executive Officer and would like to ask for your input into the search process. 
As the Search Committee Chair, I am writing to share the Committee's interest in hearing your thoughts about what we need in our next CEO. Below is a note from our colleagues at Koya Leadership Partners, the search firm that we have selected to lead the search, with an invitation to participate in one of two open conversations and/or to submit a survey with your feedback. 
Thank you for making time in your busy schedules to participate in this process and for sharing your insight. 

Kenneth Austin
Chair, PNY Search Committee
General Counsel and Corporate Secretary, The Wallace Foundation

Member Survey

If you are not available to join a call or would rather share your input in writing, you are welcome to complete a survey to offer your input: Please submit any survey responses by Monday, August 10th. 

There is no need to do both, but you are welcome to do so, if you prefer.

If you have any questions or if you would like to connect one-on-one, please reach out to Melissa Madzel at for a conversation. 

Thank you so much for your partnership on this important search.
