Succession Planning - The Roadmap: Calling all cultural professionals and leadership! The Non-Profit world is experiencing a brain drain with Board leadership, Executive Directors, and Key staff leaving their organizations. Some reasons are planned retirement, recovering from Covid, embracing work-life balance, and other reasons resulting in emergency transitions. This interactive workshop on Succession Planning, hosted by Pat Bohse, will cover what this plan is, how to get ready, conducting the search, and onboarding of the new individuals. This event will take place June 14 from 2:00pm to 4:00pm on Zoom, you can register for the event here.
