There are three things that are guaranteed:  death, taxes and leaving a job.  The most vulnerable time for a nonprofit is when it is experiencing an executive leadership change.  Knowing this, why would a board and senior leadership wait until the announcement of a pending departure to start preparing for what’s next?  Especially when transition planning is easy to do and reduces so much risk?

Despite years of warnings about the impending exodus of baby boomer executive directors and the lack of emerging leaders to replace them, too few organizations have created formal succession plans—one for a planned and another for an unplanned departure. This webinar will help every organization move forward in the succession planning process to help ensure the resiliency of your organization in a leadership transition. You’ll learn concrete steps your organization can take now to protect its vision before, during and after a leadership transition. It’s time to start the conversation and a webinar is a comfortable way to find out what you need to know about succession planning.
