A board chair transition is an important moment for a family philanthropy, often prompting larger decisions or a revisiting of the organization’s purpose and practices.
All members of the board have a role to play in preparing for and managing these inevitable leadership shifts, and need clarity about the strategies that will prepare the organization—family, staff, and other stakeholders—for the potential changes to come. What are the qualities and competencies that a successful board chair should embody, and what does the selection process entail? What are common challenges and opportunities that arise during the change management process? How does next generation engagement, family legacy, and succession planning play a role?
Whether you’re in the midst of a transition now, are preparing for an eventual shift, or haven’t yet considered this process, join this webinar to learn more about board chair succession planning.
