Executive Director Succession Policy Template
A change in executive leadership is inevitable for all organizations. It is a time of both risk and opportunity. It is a period in an organization’s history when the Board President must increase his/her level of engagement. It is also a time when some may seek assurance of the organization’s viability and long-term sustainability. A succession policy for the Executive Director position is a routine risk management and sustainability planning tool. The Policy ensures organizational sustainability by providing a proactive, orderly plan for executive leadership transitions.
