Succession Planning for You and Your Organization
On behalf of The Greater Bethesda Chamber’s Nonprofit Roundtable, all members of Chamber are invited to attend a special program focused on “Succession Planning for You and Your Organization,” a workshop for nonprofit and for-profit leaders.  This workshop will be held at the Chamber (7910 Woodmont Avenue, Suite 1204, Bethesda) on  Friday, June 14 from 8:30 a.m. until 10:30 a.m.   

Transitioning your nonprofit or business requires careful planning at every stage. As an organization expands, loses key employees, provides promotional opportunities, or increases sales and staff, best practices show that they need a succession plan in order to ensure that they have employees on hand ready and waiting to fill new roles. This is especially important for the role of the top decision maker. Join event sponsor Joanne Hurt (Executive Director,  Wonders Early Learning + Extended Day ) and members of the Nonprofit Roundtable as they hear from Succession Planning expert, Karen Schuler of Raffa-Marcum. Karen will detail the steps you and your organization need in order to be prepared for the future. As seating is limited, register now for this free member-only workshop. Continental breakfast and handout materials included.

For more information, please contact Ginanne Italiano at 301-652-4900 or gitaliano@greaterbethesdachamber.org.
