Workshop for Rowan nonprofits on executive succession

In the next five years, North Carolina’s nonprofit sector will see nearly 60 percent of its executive directors/CEOs leave their positions. Over 70 percent of N.C. nonprofits do not have a succession plan and only 33 percent have an emergency back-up plan.

It is critical that boards of directors and nonprofit executives take steps to prepare for this huge transition of leadership.

The North Carolina Center for Nonprofits will present the workshop “Executive Succession: It’s Inevitable” on May 26, 9 a.m.-noon at the Catawba College Center for the Environment, 2300 W. Innes St. Sponsored by the Blanche & Julian Robertson Family Foundation, the workshop is free of charge to all charitable nonprofit organizations in Rowan County.

The workshop will include:

  • Tools to help educate board members about their responsibilities in planning for executive succession as a key governance responsibility and a component of sound risk management;
  • A sample template for an emergency back-up plan;
  • Opportunities for interaction with other board members, executive directors/CEOs, and other senior staff; and
  • A list of resources to guide nonprofit staff and boards on this task.

This workshop is free to Rowan County nonprofits, but registration is required. For registration and information, visit http://www.ncnonprofits.org/executive-succession-it%E2%80%99s-inevitable, email info@ncnonprofits.org, or call 919-790-1555, ext. 100.
