Over the past 10 years, leadership development and succession planning in the nonprofit sector has been gaining increased attention.
In 2006, a national research study of nonprofit executive leadership found that 75% of leaders planned to retire in 5 years. In 2011, the study was conducted again and although the pace of transition was dampened by the recession, executive turnover remains high.
While the economy’s recovery is still in question, the need for more nonprofit leaders is irrefutable.
The current prediction? Approximately 640,000 nonprofit leaders will be needed by 2016. What are we as a sector doing to nurture the next generation of leaders? Is your organization prepared for a turnover in leadership?
Stay tuned for an upcoming informative webinar this spring! Webinar participants will explore strategies to strengthen nonprofit leadership and commit to the next generation of nonprofit sector leaders.
