      • How do you ensure that new officers are ready to continue to provide your organization with strong leadership ?
      • What do new officers need to know to be effective in their new roles?
  • 3. What does an effective Transition look like?
    • A plan set in place that is:
      • The responsibility of both the outgoing and incoming officers
      • A way to help the group avoid starting over or starting from scratch every year
      • A transfer of significant organizational knowledge
      • A way to minimize the confusion of leadership changeover
      • A way to give outgoing leaders a sense of closure
      • A great opportunity for outgoing leaders to evaluate the year
      • An orientation process for new leaders

      • Incoming officer/outgoing officer surveys
      • An officer handbook
      • A meeting schedule:
        • 1-on-1 training
        • Old e-board and new e-board transitioning
        • Follow up meeting (i.e. by phone or e-mail)
  • 5. Surveys
    • If you’re an outgoing officer, complete an Outgoing Officer Survey
      • This should help guide or direct you as to what the Incoming Officer needs to know
    • If you’re an incoming officer, complete an Incoming Officer Survey
      • This should help organize your thoughts and prioritize your needs

      • Financial records (Co-Chairs; Treasurer)
      • Evaluations of previous and current projects *
      • Meeting minutes and agendas (Secretary)

  • 7. Meetings
    • One-on-One: Outgoing and incoming officer meet 1-on-1 to go over all of the details of the position
      • Try to transfer as much information as possible either electronically or on paper.
      • Look at your calendar from the past year and one for the upcoming year.
      • Make introductions to resources.
  • 8. Meetings (con’t)
    • Old e-board and new e-board
      • Use this as an opportunity to set goals for your organization.
      • Ensure that meetings are run professionally. E-boards tend to be composed of peers and when we all get together…
  • 9. Meetings (con’t)
