Succession Planning for Associations and Nonprofits:
Getting Out in Front of Leadership Changes
Recorded on October 18, 2016

What happens when key executives or volunteers leave a nonprofit?

If there’s a succession plan, all that happens is a smooth change in leadership. But when there isn’t a plan, a key person’s departure can trigger disruptions that have a profound—and lasting—impact on finances, morale and mission. 

With all the challenges nonprofits are already facing, that’s an additional risk you don’t need to take.  Instead, learn how to engage your own key people in a thoughtful conversation about using succession planning to guarantee a leadership legacy.  Here’s where to start.
