Succession Planning Workshop
An Opportunity for Sustainability
Research shows that in New England, senior leadership of nonprofits will be retiring in large numbers in the coming years. For the stability and sustainability of your organizations and in turn, for the Pioneer Valley region, the Community Foundation is offering a workshop to provide information and tools for managing these transitions well.
Executive leadership transitions are pivotal moments in an organization's life cycle. Thinking about and preparing for succession can enable an organization to weather the departure of key organizational leaders, maintain sustainability, and explore opportunities for growth and change.
In this workshop, nonprofit executives and their board members will learn how to: build an adaptable organization that transitions leadership well, implement successful transition practices that address the search and hire of new leaders, manage staff reactions to change, and identify the effective roles of the executive and board.
Attendance Requirement: Each organization must register a team of at least three people. The team must consist of the chief executive (Executive Director, CEO or equivalent), the Board Chair, and 1-2 additional board members. Each individual must register themselves.
Please note that an organization's registration will not be considered complete until a team of three people have registered.
