In the absence of any specific context, I can only provide general responses:

1. Every new association chief staff executive must endeavor to identify the gaps that exist between how the organization was presented during the search process and the ground truth of what is actually happening inside. The first 90 days should be focused on learning as much as possible with an eye toward prioritizing how to build organizational capacity in underperforming functions.
