Preparing for and Managing a Productive Board Chair Transition

April 13, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm

A board chair transition is an important moment for a family philanthropy, often prompting larger  decisions or a revisiting of the organization’s purpose and practices. All members of the board have a  role to play in preparing for and managing these inevitable leadership shifts, and need clarity about the  strategies that will prepare the organization—family, staff, and other stakeholders—for the potential  changes to come.

What are the qualities and competencies that a successful board chair should  embody, and what does the selection process entail? What are common challenges and opportunities  that arise during the change management process? How does next generation engagement, family  legacy, and succession planning play a role? Whether you’re in the midst of a transition now, are  preparing for an eventual shift, or haven’t yet considered this process, join this webinar to learn more  about board chair succession planning.

Available only to Philanthropy WV members. To RSVP, please email our Director of Operations Chad Matlick at

This is part of the Fundamentals of Family Philanthropy Webinar Series from the National Center of Family Philanthropy.
