NEA Member Benefits (NEA MB or the Company), a nonprofit organization in service to members of the National Education Association (NEA) and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), seeks a strategic and mission-driven leader as their next Chief Executive Officer and President.
The National Education Association, the nation's largest professional employee organization, is committed to advancing the cause of public education. NEA's 3 million members work at every level of education—from pre-school to university graduate programs. NEA has affiliate organizations in every state and in more than 14,000 communities across the United States. Founded in 1967 as the NEA Teachers Service Corporation, NEA Member Benefits was created to support NEA members through critical programs and services responsive to member needs. In 2016, NEA MB entered a partnership with the SEIU to be their exclusive national provider of MB programs. With best-in-class products spanning financial services, insurance, investments, discounts, and travel programs and resources, NEA Member Benefits continues to provide education and service professionals with solutions that help make their lives better.
The next CEO and President will join one of the top-tier affinity marketing organizations at a period of continued growth and innovation. The CEO is responsible for the operations of NEA MB, including $58 million in annual revenue and 106 mission-driven staff. Working with NEA MB leadership, key responsibilities for the new CEO include: creating and maintaining a talented, motivated and high performing staff; enhancing a positive and cohesive organizational culture; promoting racial and social justice within the Company and with the Company’s partners; aligning Company activities to integrate and complement NEA’s to create greater enterprise value; anticipating business and organizational opportunities and threats and developing strategies to address them; creating and articulating a vision for the Company as a partner with NEA and its state affiliates to grow membership and program participation; and maintaining the balance between corporate independence and support for the NEA.
NEA Member Benefits has retained Isaacson, Miller, a national executive search firm, to assist in the recruitment of the CEO and President. All inquiries, nominations, referrals, and CVs with cover letters should be sent electronically to:
