Make Your Nonprofit Last: Succession Planning for Nonprofits

Whether you are a nonprofit founder, or a nonprofit board member or other leader, it’s important to know what to do in the event your organization’s leaders can no longer serve in their roles anymore. #Nonprofits #NonprofitCEO #successionplanning

If you are starting or growing a nonprofit, or planning your exit from a nonprofit, I hope this helps!
