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.

Join us at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C. on December 7th, 2017 as we host the Presidential Rank Awards Leadership Summit.  This year’s Summit will provide exceptional educational, mentoring, and networking opportunities for current and aspiring SES members and senior leaders.

The Summit will feature educational tracks that address the three most pressing areas of concern for Federal career senior leaders including:

  • Leadership Pipeline
  • Executive Readiness
  • Transformational Leadership

Attendees will have the opportunity recognize the extraordinary public service of senior career professionals as we honor the 2016 and 2017 awardees of the nation’s highest civilian career leadership awards.  Awardees will be recognized in two categories:

  • Distinguished Rank Recipients: Given to only one percent of career Senior Executive Service (SES) members or SES equivalents. Distinguished Rank recipients are recognized for sustained extraordinary accomplishments.
  • Meritorious Rank Recipients: Awarded to 5 percent of career SES or SES equivalents, Meritorious Rank recipients are recognized for outstanding achievement to enhance the mission of their agency.
