Title: Reaching Success in Succession Planning

Managing Boards and Committees can be challenging, especially if you are a volunteer driven organization or association. Volunteers are a vital foundation to the success of an organization or association but so much time is spent replacing, orienting and training leadership volunteers on an ongoing basis that planning and execution of goals can be difficult. This workshop looks at tools, resources and tips on how to build a strong succession plan that is easy to implement and keep your board or committee on track to success.
