Tim Delaney will take over as the next CEO of the National Council on Nonprofit Associations, replacing Audrey Alvarado, who is stepping down after nine years at the helm.
Delaney is an attorney and comes to the council from the Phoenix-based Center for Leadership, Ethics and Public Service, which he founded and has led since 2001.
He will join the council, a Washington, D.C.-based network of state and regional nonprofit associations covering 41 states, on July 7.
“As someone who has run a small nonprofit and worked with countless nonprofits at the grassroots level across the country, I have a deep and personal appreciation for the challenges faced by America’s small to midsize nonprofits,” Delaney says in a statement.
Before starting the Center for Leadership, Ethics and Public Service, Delaney served as Arizona’s solicitor general and as the state’s chief deputy attorney general.
