This hiring toolkit is a resource guide compiled by the ACCE Information Office. It is intended as a template to assist chamber of commerce volunteers in the process of hiring a new CEO. This toolkit is primarily designed for small- to medium- sized chambers who have chosen not to hire a professional search firm to help with the hiring process. While this toolkit should be used as a guide, hiring is fundamentally about forecasting the probability of success on the job and much judgment is required. The documents in this toolkit do not constitute legal advice, nor should they take the place of having professional advice when drafting legal documents.
