The Executive's Role in Administration

By Harold Silver

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, December 1947

This piece highlights the executive role in agency administration in terms of the function of an executive as well the relationship the executive has with the board and staff. The author states that when it comes to personnel policies, the executive's role is defined by the obligation to supply to the board the relevant materials on the subject with the appropriate interpretation of philosophy and prevailing practice. The piece concludes by asserting that the executive is the key person in the administration and that the two most vital functions of the executive are the activities related to the board and those related to the staff.
