    Succession Planning Cover-Sep-23-2021-08-25-39-82-PMImagine being on the leadership team and the Chief Financial Officer of your organization abruptly leaves. There’s no transition time for nonprofit succession planning. There’s no transfer of information. You are just left behind to pick up the pieces. How many months does that set you behind? How many months does that set the organization behind? It’s a mess and causes undue stress on you, your department, and the health of your organization. A proper succession plan could not have predicted this situation, but it would have given your organization a roadmap on where to go next.

    “Finance and Accounting roles are often overlooked for succession planning. However, they are mission critical to running the organization. At Concord Church, we are working hard to make sure that every role has a backup. I know it isn’t possible for every organization to employ or train a backup for every person, in those cases build a relationship with a third-party organization, such as an accounting resource, legal firm, IT provider, etc. If something happened to me, I know that our accounting partner, Baker Tilly, could easily step in and keep the show running,” - Tammy Bunting, CFO at Concord Church. 

    In our eBook, we dig into succession planning steps to take and discuss why it is so important. We provide stories and statistical data to help you clearly understand the necessity of succession planning.
