EACE 2018-2018 Board of Directors Elections

President-Elect Candidate

Craig Single
Director, Talent Acquisition, People & Culture Team, Vertex Inc.

1. Describe your interest in serving on the EACE Board in this capacity.

In 1998 I attended my first professional conference, EACE, in Georgetown, DC. I met two people that eventually would be integral to every job I have had since attending! At that conference I volunteered for the emerging Technology Committee and began my service to EACE which included committees, conferences, and two terms on the board. Throughout my experiences in, and outside, of EACE, I believe I am at the point where I can pay back the great benefits that EACE has given to me.

2. What skills and experiences do you possess that have prepared you to be successful in this role?

During my career I have been a college, associate, and now employer member of EACE. I believe these experiences help me understand the perspectives of our membership. During one EACE conference, I was able to share dinner with the keynote speaker. He suggested reading a book, The Go-Giver, which he felt was aligned with how I described my approach to work. Of all the skills and experiences I have to offer, I believe the mindset highlighted in this book, as well as The Outward Mindset, is how I can make the biggest contribution to the EACE membership. As I do every day in my job, I plan to use this mindset approach which focuses on understanding our memberships objectives and find a way to align our goals and services to what will best serve them in the future.

3. What ideas and/or goals do you have for this position?

There are two primary goals I’d like to focus during my time in the role. First, is approaching our current and potential members with the outward mindset, to find a way to align our programs and services to best serve them through EACE in the future. Second, is championing efforts to help neurodiverse students gain meaningful employment and help our employer members prepare to bring these amazing employees to their teams.
