Study Reveals Diversity and Inclusion are a Priority For Florida Associations and Provides Growth Opportunities

July 19, 2018 (Tallahassee, FL) — The Florida Society of Association Executives, partnering with the executive search firm Vetted Solutions, today released the results of a survey on diversity and inclusion within its member trade and professional associations in Florida.

The survey is the first in Florida to analyze qualitatively the state of associations’ efforts to incorporate diversity and inclusion into their day-to-day operations and their staffing and strategic plans. The study results indicate that while Florida associations recognize diversity and inclusion are significant factors to an organization’s success, many are still working through the practical implementation to more fully realize their goals:

• More than 90% of the executives who responded believe diversity and inclusion efforts definitely or probably contribute to a more successful association. However, more than two-thirds do not have a diversity strategy for hiring, retention, or promotion.

• More than 57% of respondents have an expressed commitment to diversity and inclusion as part of their association’s core values, but more than 57% say their organizations do not have specific action plans that demonstrate a commitment to diversity and inclusion.

• More than 81% work with diverse others to achieve mutual goals, yet nearly 38% indicate that finding qualified diverse applicants remains a challenge.

“This study is an important benchmark for Florida associations,” said FSAE President/CEO Frank Rudd, CAE, CMP. “The data shows a significant incorporation of diversity and inclusion principles, and that Florida associations have begun to make explicit commitments in their mission statements, succession plans, and performance indicators. It also helps our association members, as well as FSAE, identify areas for support and education in order to successfully embed these important principles in every level of an association and its work.” He anticipates FSAE’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Task Force will focus on developing resources to address these challenges.

James Zaniello, President at Vetted Solutions, added, “Nearly two-thirds of the respondents were the President or CEO of the association, which shows a clear commitment to see these efforts succeed. We are thrilled by the honest discussion of challenges these associations face, especially those with small staffs, as well as the recognition that all organizations are strengthened when all voices are included.”

You can access the report here.

The Florida Society of Association Executives (FSAE) fosters collaboration of association management professionals through networking and educational events, online communities and best-practice resources. With approximately 1,100 members, FSAE has been serving the association industry throughout Florida for more than 55 years. To learn more, visit www.fsae.org.

Addition of Richard B. Green Extends Vetted Solutions Expertise To Hospitality, Destination Marketing Industry

WASHINGTON, D.C., June 8, 2015 — Vetted Solutions, the executive search firm specializing in helping associations and nonprofit organizations find and develop high-performing leaders, has extended its expertise to the hospitality and destination marketing community.

Effective this month, the Washington, D.C. based firm has tapped Richard B. Green to lead its new area of focus, drawing upon his distinguished, multi-decade career as a senior executive with the Marriott Corporation. While in this post, Green earned widespread recognition and awards for his work on behalf of Marriott in working with a wide roster of associations and other organizations involved in the development of the company’s global management and leadership team, and the advancement of the leadership search and development profession.

“This is an exciting new chapter in my career,” Green said. “Vetted Solutions has provided me an unique opportunity to apply the knowledge, insights and contacts I’ve accumulated over literally decades of work in the hospitality and destination marketing industry to building really exceptional leadership teams.“

Vetted Solutions President and Founder Jim Zaniello, FASAE hailed Green’s decision to join the firm.

“Richard’s credentials speak volumes,” he said. “I don’t think anyone can match his history of accomplishments and success in being a bridge between the hospitality industry and the search and leadership development community. Now that he has a Vetted Solutions team and all its resources and experience behind him, I can’t wait to see what he accomplishes next.”

During his career, Green had direct responsibility for increasing Marriott’s visibility and market share through active involvement with clients and numerous high-level industry associations, including the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE), the Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA), the Destination Management Association International (DMAI) and others. His deep involvement in such groups earned Green roles as board member and chairman of numerous committees.

Green is a graduate of the University of Denver School of Hotel and Restaurant Management and has chaired the school’s Alumni Board of Directors. His wide-ranging intellectual interests also have driven his success as a business entrepreneur, pioneer in the use of social media and thought leader in the emerging field of destination branding. Details on his distinguished career and other biographical background can be found on the Vetted Solutions web site at Vetted Solutions.

“I’ve been in the trenches with the people in this industry,” Green added. “I know the world they live in, and I understand the challenges they face. I know what it takes not just to do a good job but more important to do a great job as a leader and an executive. With Vetted Solutions, I can leverage that insight to do some important and rewarding work for clients. Working together, we can keep the talent pipeline full for sustained top performance, no matter how the demands of the business grow and evolve.”

Green will lead efforts to define the unique leadership needs of individual clients and build upon Vetted Solutions’ widely recognized capabilities in identifying exceptional candidates, Zaniello said.

“Our approach extends beyond just finding the best candidate,” he said. “We’ve built lasting relationships with many organizations given our client-centric approach. Richard embodies that spirit, which is a major reason he’s such a great fit for our company – and our clients.”

Background information about Vetted Solutions also can be found at the firm’s web site, Vetted Solutions.
