Executive Director/CEO Succession Planning – Always be Ready

Are you ready if your lead staff person announces he/she is leaving…next week?

The departure of an Executive Director/CEO is usually a significant event for an organization. Board leaders and other staff are expected to step into the gap and keep the organization “humming”, yet only 34% of the nonprofits have leadership succession or transition plans. Board leaders can feel uncertain about their responsibilities when a notice of resignation or retirement is received. Increasingly, funders are asking grantees if they have a written succession plan in place.

During this workshop, each organization will have the opportunity to draft an Emergency Succession Plan for their ED/CEO, explore staff and board development strategies that can help create a successful transition, and walk through a typical transition process from beginning to end.

The 50/50 Solution: Raising More Money from Men and Women
Central Library Browning Rooms A & B, Evansville IN

9:30 am – 3:00 pm CDT

Presenter: Andrea Pactor, Associate Director, Women’s Philanthropy Institute, IU Lilly Family School of Philanthropy

Cost: $59

Looking for new donors to fuel your nonprofit’s mission?  Fundraisers today must engage women and men because gender matters in philanthropy.  In this daylong workshop we will explore new research about gender differences in motivations for giving and philanthropic behavior; who’s making the decisions about charitable giving in the household; and how to engage more effectively with men and women donors.

Registration closes one week prior to workshop date or when workshop is full.
