Workforce Management: The Value of Succession Planning, Transitions, Staff Development and Recruiting Strategies 

Workshop Details:

You leave a meeting with two key staff on an important project and find out at the end of the discussion that they’re both going to be retiring, next month!  The thought runs through your mind, what will the organization do to replace those skills and knowledge?  Do we have their ‘knowledge base’ downloaded anywhere? Written anywhere?  Shared with others?  Who will replace them?  How long will the recruitment take?  Are their viable candidates within or outside of the organization?  Succession planning is often thought of and discussed at the wrong time; after the resignation or retirement meeting with a valued staff member. As the saying goes, ‘plan ahead’.  What is succession planning?  When should you start?  How do you do it?  Is it worth the effort?  These and other questions will be explored during this session on workforce management and planning. 


  • Develop an understanding of the practice and value of workforce planning.
  • Explore the components, steps and timing of succession planning.
  • Identify the techniques of organization knowledge transfers and skill building strategies

Reading Financial Statements

March 20, 2019 — 9:00 - Noon

Presented by Timothy J. Gavin, CPA, Senior Audit Manager, John Kasperek, Co., Inc.




Financial statements can be confusing and hard to read, and yet they provide some of the most valuable

information in assessing the financial health of an organization. With so much information that is

presented, it can be hard to separate what matters to you from what doesn’t. This session will

demonstrate how to interpret the numbers and notes in a standard financial report and show how to best use the information to understand an organization. Whether you’re a manager, board member, or other stakeholder, making sense of a financial report is key in making informed decisions.



·         Understand the basics of financial report structure.

·         Read and interpret the balance sheet, income statement, and statement of cash flows.

·         Analyze the note disclosure.

·         Identify the information most important in analysis and decision-making.
