Our CEO is leaving!!!  Now what???

Very few organizations seem to have thorough plans for leadership succession.  A transition in any senior leadership position, planned or unplanned, brings challenges that can throw an unprepared organization into chaos.  Thinking through key decisions ahead of time and committing those decisions to writing can head off myriad problems.

Join The Association’s CEO who will walk you through the process he used to develop a very robust Transition & Continuity Plan designed to help our Board and staff navigate change.  Should he leave through termination, voluntary or involuntary, disability, retirement or —heaven forbid— death, the plan document will minimize stress and maximize the likelihood of a seamless transition. 

Is your organization ready for a major change?  Let us help you get there! This interactive Clinic will guide you through a sample planning document. You will brainstorm along with your colleagues.

This clinic will be led by Jim Tedford, CAWA, President & CEO, The Association for Animal Welfare Advancement.
