Sauer to Speak at Institute for Human Services Annual Meeting - It's Time for Succession Planning!

On March 19th Doug Sauer, CEO of CCSNYS will be providing the keynote address at the Institute for Human Services Annual Meeting in Bath, NY. The topic of the conference will focus on Doug's keynote on "Nonprofit Transitions - Preparing for Leadership Change."

This important topic, fuelled by studies like the one authored by Thomas Tierny of the Bridgespan Group suggest that the nonprofit sector will be facing a severe leadership deficit in the next 5 to 10 years - if not sooner.

Doug's keynote will focus on the looming issue of transitioning to the next generation of leadership, and what the board and executive staff should do to prepare the organization for this transition.

The meeting is $25 for IHS Members, and $35 for non-members. Please click here for more information on this event.

Patrick Rogers, the Executive Director of IHS, is planning on bringing more tools, resources, peer sharing and educational opportunities like this to the Southern Tier. This may include, in the future, some group sharing & peer learning on our own NED BLOG!
