Succession Planning for Non-profits

Intentionally preparing for the departure of executive directors, board members, and staff is a key way to maintain stability in organizations of any size. As high quality personnel and volunteers rotate through terms, quit, or retire, organizations with succession plans are able to maintain high levels of performance and continuity. In this workshop for non-profits held in conjunction with the Fond du Lac Area United Way on April 15, 2014, we discussed how to plan for both expected and unexpected transitions, and develop strong leaders throughout the organization.
