Putting the Success in Succession Planning!
Location: Community Education & Health Resource Center,  Newport News

May 17 – 11:30 am – 1:30 pm – Janet V. Green, CEOHabitat for Humanity Peninsula & Greater Williamsburg. CEO succession planning is a “best practice” that many nonprofit Boards and CEOs put off until they are forced to face a transition. Boards may hope their CEO will never leave – or at least not while they’re on the Board. Some CEOs don’t think about succession planning as they are busy with other priorities. The best Boards know they will be stronger if a plan is in place, and the best CEOs are always preparing for what comes next.  This workshop is geared to CEOs/EDs/Board members, and discussion includes planned and unplanned transitions, including steps to take to mitigate risk.  Handouts will include a checklist of steps for the Board and CEO to consider and a sample succession plan.  Time will be allotted for questions and exchange of ideas.
