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 Applauds Fix for Paid Administrative Leave in NDAA

(Washington, DC) – In response to the passage of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which included a provision to codify paid administrative leave and limit its broad use and potential for abuse, Bill Valdez, President of the Senior Executives Association (SEA), issued the following statement:

“SEA has long been a champion of reform for paid administrative leave, actively engaging with lawmakers to aid in crafting the provision included in the NDAA, and we are pleased that the fruits of that engagement have resulted in the creation of a fair and thoughtful resolution.  This is the type of constructive and bipartisan reform that improves the functioning of our government and provides assurances to the American taxpayer that Congress and senior career executives are serious about improving the business of government.

“We would especially like to thank Senators Tester and Grassley, and their diligent staff who have taken the time to understand this issue, and to the other members from both chambers who have supported and voted for reform.

“This is a victory for good government. The misuse of extended administrative leave has a significant impact on the efficiency and effectiveness of departments and agencies, in addition to its infringement on employees’ due process rights. This provision will curb that unnecessary waste of taxpayer resources so the government can continue to best provide its services for the American public.”
