Succession Planning Offered
by United Way and UW Extension Services

The Fond du Lac Area United Way is partnering with Fond du Lac County University of Wisconsin Extension to offer local non-profit organizations a morning workshop on how to develop succession plans.

Intentionally preparing for the departure of staff, board members and administrators is a key way to maintain stability in organizations of any size. As high quality personnel and volunteers rotate through terms, quit, or retire, organizations with succession plans are able to maintain high levels of performance.

Workshop training is planned for 7:30am - 10:30am on Tuesday April 15 in the UW-Extension offices at UW-Fond du Lac, Room AE 205/206. Beverages and snacks will be provided.

Learn more about this workshop, including how to reserve a spot.

Determining which programs will be funded and how many dollars will be allocated to each of those programs is led by United Way’s board of directors, with the support of an experienced team of grant reviewers.
