Succession Planning – Advanced-Level Workshop for CEOs

Mention the words “Succession Planning” and people stop talking and give you their attention. Everyone is thinking: “What happened? Are you leaving? Who will lead this organization?”

 With succession planning, the board and CEO acknowledge that the agency will experience changes in leadership and ensure systems are in place to support leadership changes.

The second in a three-part series of sessions about succession planning is scheduled for Wednesday, March 23 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. 

Stay tuned for more details - registration will open soon!
