Succession Planning Re-Imagined: Leadership Continuity to Sustain Your Mission

Presenter: NAWA
Cost: $60 for Members of NDANO / $120 for Not-yet-members

What does “succession planning” mean in your organization? Nonprofit executives and their boards often react nervously, even negatively, to the idea of leadership succession discussions. And according to BoardSource, 73% of nonprofits don’t have a written succession plan.

A change in leadership is always a challenge, and COVID-19 has put more pressure than ever on nonprofits. Not having a succession plan creates a huge risk for your organization if there’s a sudden vacancy in a key position. But leadership transitions also provide opportunities for growth if your organization has a culture focused on developing the human capital it needs for the future.

The Nonprofit Association of Washington and Third Sector Company are pleased to offer this two-part webinar series to help your organization build such a culture. “Succession Planning Re-Imagined” will:

- Frame succession planning as essential to your organization’s long-term sustainability
- Outline the essential components of an effective succession plan
- Present five options for beginning your organization’s leadership continuity work
- Provide specific tools and resources to support that work
- Empower you to become the champion for succession planning and leadership continuity in your organization
