CFWM Succession Plannning Workshop 

The Kittredge Center
Holyoke Community College
303 Homestead Avenue,
Holyoke, MA

Research shows that in New England and nationally, senior leadership of organizations will be retiring in large numbers in the coming years. For the stability and sustainability of your organizations and in turn, for the Pioneer Valley region, the Community Foundation is offering a workshop to provide information and tools for managing these transitions well. 

Executive leadership transitions are pivotal moments in an organization's lifecycle. Thinking about and preparing for these transitions can enable an organization to weather the departure of key organizational leaders to maintain sustainability and explore opportunities for growth and change. In this workshop, organizational executives and their board members will learn how to: build an adaptable organization that transitions leadership well, implement successful transition practices that address the search and hire of new leaders, manage staff reactions to change, and identify the effective roles of the executive and board.

Attendance Requirement:  Each organization must register a team of at least three people. The team must consist of the chief executive (Executive Director, CEO or equivalent), the Board Chair, and 1-2 additional board members. Each individual must register themselves. 

Please note that registration will not be considered complete for the organization until a team of 3 people have registered.

Hope to see you there!
