Senior Executives Association

Welcome to the Senior Executives Association

Senior Executives Association (SEA) is the professional association for career members of the Senior Executive Service (SES) and equivalent positions. SEA is not only the voice of the SES through a strong advocacy program, it empowers senior leaders across government by providing the tools, resources and connections they need to succeed in the 21st century.

SEA's membership spans across government agencies, missions and functions, giving SEA a unique whole of government perspective and the ability to connect to the skills, tools and people (both public and private sectors) that senior leaders need. SEA members receive access to research and news, strategic networks, and connections to the good practices across government that they may not receive on the job.

Above all else, SEA is guided by dedication to public service and to helping career federal leaders better serve the American people.

SEA/Deloitte 2017 Government Human Capital Trends Symposium

SEA collaborated with Deloitte to host an exciting event around the Human Capital Trends and their impact on government agencies.

The event took place on March 17, 2017 at the Halcyon House, a local incubator in Georgetown. Government executives representing 22 agencies/organizations had the opportunity to engage with speakers from SEA, as well as Global and Federal Human Capital Leaders from Deloitte and Government.

The event included an engaging panel led by Deloitte’s David Dye and featuring Mika Cross (DOL), David Bray (FCC), Nagesh Rao (SBA), and Heidi Paxton (Deloitte). The highlight of the day was a breakout activity in which attendees discussed the trends in small groups. Popular trend topics were around Leadership, Performance Management, Talent Acquisition, and Diversity & Inclusion.
