This May, Make Succession Planning a Priority
In May, the BC Alliance is partnering with Realize Strategies to offer a pair of workshops on succession planning for arts, culture and heritage organizations. This is your chance to take the important step of making succession planning a priority for your organization. You do not need to attend one session to attend the other, so register according to your needs.
A strong organization is built on the foundation of a strong board. On May 21, Executive Director & Board Succession Planning is designed for board members and will cover both executive director (ED) and board succession planning. The first part of the workshop will guide participants through the thinking and process of ED succession planning, while the second will offer guidance and present the best practices for the planning of board succession.
But it’s not just important to plan for ED and board succession. Staff succession planning in non-profit organizations is essential due to non-profits competing with other (potentially higher paying) employers in the market for the same employees. On May 22, Staff Retention and Succession Planning will guide thinking and planning for staff retention and succession planning.
As usual, BC Alliance members receive a special discounted rate, and livestreaming and ASL are available upon request. For more information and to register for one or both sessions today, click here!
