    Description: Some change is unexpected and sudden, while change in executive leadership is likely and, when retirement ends a tenure, an anticipated event.  Even when a change is expected, the transition is likely to cause reactions ranging from disruption to chaos, from excitement to emotional turmoil.  Engaging your Board of Directors in succession planning early on can mitigate the upheaval that results from a change in leadership.  Jim Zaniello of Vetted Solutions will frame the problem and moderate a panel discussion on succession planning at the board level.

    Learning Outcomes:
    Participants will
    - learn when and how to engage the Board of Directors in strategic planning for executive succession
    - recognize the impact of executive change on staff and consumers
    - develop contingencies for addressing ambiguity and unknowns on the departure of a known executive
