Over the next 5 years Canadians will be retiring at a pace unparalleled in human history. The biggest demographic wave in the country’s history is hurtling into retirement. The baby boomers – that massive bubble of people born in the two decades following the Second World War – have begun the transition from employment to retirement.
This phenomenon has serious implications for non-profit, charitable and volunteer organizations whose senior management staff are planning to retire in the next 3-5 years. Boards of Directors are watching as knowledgeable and experienced senior staff make their plans to depart, often without a plan to replace their prized employee or the expertise they take with them. It’s important to create a range of succession plans for emergency and planned departures, to ensure sustainability, consistency and continued organizational success.
This workshop is suitable for board members and senior staff of non-profit, charitable and volunteer organizations and will explore:
- the context for succession planning and who should be involved
- your board’s role as employer of the staff leader
- the relationship between mission, vision, values and succession planning
- types of succession plans – emergency, long/short term, permanent
- sample succession policies and steps in succession planning
- tools and resources to help you create your own succession plan
Register online by March 25.
This workshop is hosted by Literacy Link Niagara.
