Shine the Light Offers Nonprofit Succession Planning Workshop on June 19 at Zen

DNA Creative Communications (DNA), in partnership with the Community Foundation of Greenville, the United Way of Greenville County, the Hollingsworth Funds, The Graham Foundation and the Jolley Foundation presents “Go the Distance: Leadership Transitions and Organizational Sustainability” on June 19 (8:00 – noon) at Zen, located at 924 S. Main St in Greenville. Nonprofit expert Don Crocker will facilitate the session, which is specifically designed for nonprofit executive directors and their board members.

Don Crocker, who travels to Greenville from New York, is a Senior Fellow and Immediate Past Executive Director/CEO of the Support Center /Partnership in Philanthropy and currently serves on the Board of Grantmakers for Effective organizations. Don has worked with the Annie E. Casey, JPMorgan Chase, & Clark Foundations and the New York Community Trust to establish the Executive Search & Transitions Management program at the Support Center, which has benefitted hundreds of nonprofits nationwide.

On June 19th participants will deepen their awareness and understanding of the risks and challenges inherent in “unexpected” chief executive transitions and learn strategies for reducing these risks. They will walk away with an understanding of current learning in the nonprofit sector about exceptional and effective practices in executive transition management. As in the design of all Shine the Light sessions, participants will be asked to commit to “one simple step” towards embracing succession planning and reducing the risks of executive transition within their organizations.
