INTRODUCTION: Roger Stancil, Chapel Hill Town Manager, is retiring. The selection process for the Town Manager has been approved by the Town Council and includes evaluation of skills through an assessment center process and evaluation of emotional intelligence through an inventory as well as behavioral assessment. Council will interview the finalists for evaluation of fit through structured and behavioral interviews.

To assist with the selection process, transparency and the spirit of community engagement which is so vital in Chapel Hill, the Town of Chapel Hill Mayor and Council are inviting public comment regarding the hiring of the next Town Manager. The information requested in this survey will be used to identify competencies needed in the next Manager as well as critical issues facing the Town. This information will be used to develop the skill assessments and structured interview questions to evaluate candidates. All responses are anonymous. Please note that there is a 4099 character limit per question. Results will be summarized by the consulting group Developmental Associates which will be facilitating the search and hiring process for the Town. Please note that you can respond one time using a unique identifier that you choose (we recommend writing this down as we will not be able to recover it for you).
