About this Session:

The most valuable asset of a nonprofit organization is its executive director/chief executive officer; a critical function of the governing board of an organization is the hiring and monitoring of its ED/CEO.  The board is obligated to ensure leadership continuity, and the ED/CEO should likewise attend to succession readiness at the executive level. This workshop session will focus on the board’s involvement with succession planning; and the ED/CEO’s role in overall succession planning of the senior leadership team. This entails an intentional value for transparency, a commitment of time and planning, and a focus on strengthening skills and leadership capacities. We will review effective policies and procedures that need to be in place and building a “bench” (or “cross-training”) as an effective tool for succession planning. Consideration will be made of the impact of the size of the organization, and the skills and capacity of its existing leadership. The workshop format will be based on creative discussion (including case examples from participants) and developing the components of an individual plan for succession.
