"CEN's ED Transition training was perhaps the most useful training  I've ever attended. It was interesting, engaging, and extremely practical."

Workshop Description

It is not a matter of IF, but WHEN … is your nonprofit organization prepared for an executive transition? An unplanned separation can be detrimental to the health of an organization. In this workshop participants will gain a clear understanding of the board’s key roles and responsibilities throughout the transition process. You will learn how to prepare for a transition (expected or unexpected), how to design and execute a plan for this transition, best practices to identify and hire a new executive, and how to maintain an environment of long term organizational health.

Intended Audience: Nonprofit board members, executives, and key senior staff.


  • Gain a clear understanding of the board’s role before, during, and after transitions
  • Take home an outline for how to plan for and effectively manage an executive transition period
  • Strategies to identify and hire a candidate that enhances capacity and impact
