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 Releases Version 4.0 of Career Executive Presidential Transition Handbook

The Senior Executives Association’s (SEA) Professional Development League (PDL) designed a new handbook to specifically address the needs and challenges of federal career executives.

While SEA released version 3.0 of the handbook earlier this year, we saw the need to update and expand the handbook as the presidential inauguration grows near. Thus, we are pleased to announce the release of version 4.0 which includes an array of update, plus a section on Stan Meiburg’s Top 12 Tips for Transition.
