Countdown to Annual Conference

Partnership with NCAPCS to Recruit Top Talent in Leadership Positions

In February 2024 the North Carolina Association for Public Charter Schools and Gray III Search! partnered with one overriding goal—to help member charter schools in North Carolina recruit outstanding people for Executive Director/Head-of-School, Fundraising, and Communications Director positions.


Jim brings 25 years of experience working with and for nonprofits and has been an active member of NCAPCS for the past four years.


“Jim brings a wealth of talent and senior experience in the nonprofit world to this partnership,” said NCAPCS Executive Director Rhonda Dillingham. “This enhances our ability to serve our members and helps them recruit top talent. That way, they can fulfill their full potential for students and families across our state.”


Jim said, “I am so happy to partner up with the Association because it has its members’ best interest at heart each and every day of the year.  It will be great to combine our contacts and knowledge of the marketplace for charter school leaders. To serve the public good has always been a goal of my firm Gray III Consulting, so my launch of Gray III Search!  can help me do that.”


Concentrating on these top leadership positions will make a real difference in the immediate and sustained success of charter schools, Dillingham and Gray predicted.


As part of the partnership, Gray will discount his normal search fee of $6,000 by $500 for NCAPCS members.


“That will give our schools top recruitment services at a fourth of the cost of retained search firms in the US,” Dillingham said.


Jim will conduct a webinar about charter school recruiting on March 27 at 10:00 a.m. This webinar is complimentary for NCAPCS members.  Registration is available through the link below:


Jim will lead a breakout session at the NCAPCS’s annual conference in Charlotte in July.
