SEA Board of Directors Announces Retirement of Longtime SEA President

The Senior Executives Association Board of Directors today announced the retirement of SEA President Carol A. Bonosaro.

She served as a member of the Board of Directors from 1981-1986, as Chair of the Board from 1983 to 1986, and as President from 1986 to the present. She will leave SEA as of November 4 and assume the position of President Emeritus.

She said, “It is with very mixed feelings that I leave the Association. After 25 years in government, and 29 years as President of SEA, however, it is time that I ‘smell the roses.’ I have been extremely fortunate to do work about which I am passionate and to meet and interact with talented career executives with critical responsibilities, many of whose accomplishments have been extraordinary. It’s been an incredible journey, but I am looking forward to my new role and helping to ensure that SEA will continue to be successful in representing the interests of the career Federal executive service.”

SEA has selected and will introduce the new association president to the members and our community in the near future.

SEA Board Chair Barbara Pabotoy said, “We are thankful to Carol for her stalwart support of SEA and all Senior Executives, and wish her well in her future endeavors, which will include ongoing support to SEA ideals.”

SEA is celebrating its 35th anniversary, and continues its commitment to support good government, effective management and the essential role of the career Senior Executive service to meet those goals.

Among her many accomplishments, Bonosaro created the SEA Professional Development League’s annual Presidential Distinguished Rank Award banquet in 1986 which recognizes the excellence Senior Executives bring to government; she played a key role in ensuring the substantial executive pay raise resulting from the 1989 Ethics Reform Act and which was critical to attracting and retaining competent career leadership; she led the Association’s successful effort to overturn the STOCK Act requirement for Internet publication of executives’ annual financial reports, protecting not only privacy but also certain national security concerns that were never considered in the original law; and she created the Distinguished Executives Advisory Network to leverage their significant knowledge and accomplishments to support the SEA’s thought leadership for effective government management.

She will relocate to Boynton Beach, Florida, where her daughter resides.

“While we will be installing a new President to lead the association,” Pabotoy noted, “we will never be able to replace Carol.”
