Sustainability and Succession Planning: Everything You Need to Know but Were Afraid to Ask

November 2, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


Leadership transitions are pivotal moments for an organization that can present opportunities for both transformative change and dangerous missteps. Thoughtfully planning for leadership transition, prepares an organization to weather the departure of key leaders, builds organizational capacity AND strengthens leadership throughout the entire organization.  Preparing for a leadership transition, or succession planning, is a key component of organizational sustainability.

In this workshop participants will increase their understanding of succession planning, and where it fits into an organization’s overall sustainability plan. Led by Third Sector New England and grounded in their latest research, PLUS practical advice from a seasoned nonprofit leader, participants will gain valuable insights into building a sustainable and leaderful organization.

Important Note: It is expected that both the Executive Director and an appropriate member of the organization’s Board of Directors will participate in this workshop.

This workshop is open to Community Foundation grantees only. Select organizations will be invited to participate. If interested in learning more, please contact RJ Mercede.

Cost: $50 for each attendee
