Whenever you’re a nonprofit leader—whether you’re staff, board, or a committee chair—it’s important to think about what will happen when you move on from your role. What would happen if your board president or executive director were incapacitated tomorrow? What would you do if your executive director announced a 2022 retirement? This is where thoughtful succession planning is critical to your organization’s sustainability. Learn the steps you can take to ensure your organization is prepared for both emergency and planned leadership changes.
