Registry Best Practices Define The Gold Standard

The Registry’s success matching the right interim executives to the right institutions is made possible by its burgeoning membership of more than 700 veteran executives; and is enhanced by the development of—and adherence to—the following six best practices for interim engagements:

  • All of The Registry’s preliminary work is pro bono—including the identification and selection of candidates.
  • Registry interim candidates have already been pre-qualified—and they are immediately available to be matched to the needs and requirements of your institution.
  • The Registry’s business model makes it possible for institutions to cap their overall costs at current budgetary levels for the duration of the interim engagement.
  • A Registry “Expectations Document” is collaboratively developed that defines the purpose, direction and desired outcomes.
  • The Registry is a membership-based organization, which preempts the need for expensive, time-consuming and potentially disruptive open-market interim searches.
  • For more than twenty-five years, the Registry has provided the best talent—and its members have delivered the best results.

A Proven Process

The Registry’s success in delivering the right interim leaders to the right institutions is built upon a proven, four-step process:

1
Getting to know you

We work closely with you to gain the knowledge and insight to find candidates who fit your goals. They will review materials and consult directly with your board chair, president and other key decision makers.

2
Drawing on experienced candidates

We offer a pool deep with talent. Our members are already vetted by and contracted to The Registry and can be ready on short notice to assume interim positions.

3
Managing the selection process

We help you make the right choice. A Registry principal will travel to campus with your chosen finalists to participate in a customized and collegial selection process.

4
Tracking results

We help you manage expectations. A Registry principal will develop an expectations document that identifies your challenges and priorities and establishes accountability for your new interim administrator.

Placements / Outcomes

"[The Interim] worked very effectively with the incoming president, consulted with him on continuing changes after the new president had been announced and did all he could to enable his successor to assume leadership with confidence. For the third time, I would recommend him without question. If possible, we would designate him as Interim President Emeritus for his outstanding work."

Dr. Peter Garland, Executive Vice Chancellor and Chief Academic Officer Pennsylvania's State System of Higher Education

"The mission of the Registry, as well as its measured outcomes, is an outstanding "value added" to the American higher education enterprise. I was blessed to benefit from the many and valued prior experiences of a former president and provost, who served in an interim capacity at my institution. My Registry colleague was able to hit the ground running and bring all the talent and experiences of prior positions to bear. Our entire college community benefited from the one year Registry appointment that ended up as a two-plus year assignment."

 

Kathleen Owens, PhD, President Gwynedd-Mercy College

"I would use the Registry again in a heartbeat. It was, as it turns out, just the perfect partnership and provided value to the university far, far in excess of the standard fees requested."

 

 

Dr. Steven A. Stargardter, Former President, JFK University

"I want to thank you personally for the kind attention you paid to helping us find an interim candidate with the abilities we needed. I have found the entire experience working with you and your team at the Registry to be very professional and enjoyable. Clearly we couldn’t have had a better experience or found a more qualified and competent interim without your help. Thank you."

Mark A. Nook, Chancellor Montana State University Billings

"This was the first time our college used the Registry to fill an administrative position. I was very pleased with the quality of the candidates that were identified for us, and I had no hesitation in filling a subsequent interim positions through the same process."

 

Nancy Kleniewski, President SUNY Oneonta

"Several SUNY campuses have used the Registry to fill immediate leadership needs with success. I applaud the Registry for their careful selection of experienced leaders to its ranks and providing this valuable service to campuses that need it."

Nancy L. Zimpher, Chancellor State University of New York
The 25th Annual Registry Seminar

Our 25th Annual Seminar for Registry members will be held in Boston, MA.

Every year we invite our membership to participate in an Annual Seminar, which focuses on current issues and major challenges facing the academy.  The Annual Seminar is always a very collegial event, and it is intentionally structured to be a meeting of, by, and for our Members.   It is often recognized as one of the best annual conferences dedicated to college and university issues; and it is another unique dimension of membership that distinguishes The Registry from all other organizations that provide interim executives for institutions of higher learning.
