Learning Lunch: Countdown to the Inevitable, Unavoidable Leadership Transition

Benjamin Franklin once said "In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.”  Those working in nonprofits might add another absolute certainty – the departure of a key leader.



Like it or not, for better or for worse, planned or unplanned, there will come a day during your tenure as a board member, chief executive, or as a member of your nonprofit's management team when a leader will leave. Yet too many nonprofits are leaving succession planning on the back burner. Targeted to executive directors and board members, learn steps your nonprofit can take now to prepare for the inevitable transition of key leadership and avoid planning pitfalls.

When: Thursday, November 17, 2016, Noon

Location: United Arts office, 410 Glenwood Avenue, Suite 170, Raleigh

Presenter: Bert Armstrong, Co-Founder and Principal, Armstrong McGuire
