Change is inevitable! But is your organization prepared for it? Succession Planning is so important, yet many nonprofits do not have a succession plan in place. Come learn how to create or revise your organization's succession plan.
Let's be honest, it's time to build your bench strength. With the Baby Boomer generation in the process of retiring, they are taking with them 40+ years of knowledge, experience, working relationships, and information. Do you have a plan to capture that knowledge before it walks out your door? Are you properly investing in the next generation of leaders who will take their place?
