Workshop helps nonprofits transition to new leaders


SKOWHEGAN — Encore Leadership Corps is holding a workshop on the topic of succession planning from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 12, at Skowhegan Federated Church, 13 Island Ave. Snow date is Feb. 13.

Volunteer leaders, board members, executive directors and volunteers in food pantries and other small nonprofit organizations are urged to attend.

In organizations run primarily by volunteers, much of the wisdom resides in the minds of a few key individuals.

While this is effective, it doesn’t lead to sustainability or an easy transition of knowledge to the next generation of leadership. Presented by Anne Schink of ABS Consulting, this workshop will explore all the various pieces of information that need to be collected, organized and shared to ensure the future of an organization.

This workshop is free and lunch will be provided.
