Resource Summary: To many, “Succession Planning” means one thing: “When is the boss retiring and how will subsequent changes in leadership affect the organization.” While top level executive change is critical to the Migrant Health movement, given the age of the program and the significant number of Executives who have devoted their careers to running Migrant and Community Health Centers, real Succession Planning happens at all levels of the organizational structure, and is multidisciplinary in scope. This workshop will provide tools that can be useful at any level, and will encourage frank dialog about the risks associated with lack of a viable corporate succession plan.
