Thresholds: Leaving Nonprofit Life with Courage and Grace

Thresholds for Executives with Continuing Careers

Presented by: Gammy Bird Consulting

Whether leaving a mission filled life as a NP leader or transitioning from your current position to another, it is challenging at best. To do so successfully requires support, tools, and know-how and courage. Are these questions on your mind?

  • When and how do I share the news that I have decided to leave my organization?
  • What are best practices in wrapping up my time with an organization?
  • What do I say to a potential internal candidate?
  • I’ve been grooming a staff person. How do I make this known without overstepping my bounds?
  • How do I support my staff as I ready myself to leave?
  • Is the board ready to handle this?
  • My board wants to do a strategic plan. Is now the right time?
  • Some staff positions really need to be shifted around. Do I do it or leave it to the next executive?
  • What if I leave before the board hires someone?
  • What are the best resources to share with the board?

In total confidential, Eos Transition Partners offers Thresholds: Leaving Nonprofit Life with Courage and Grace – an invaluable cohort-style opportunity to learn about effective practices to prepare for your leadership departure, to share with others the joys and anxieties of leaving your work, and, use tools to assess organizational vulnerabilities and the actions necessary to leave well.

The experience includes:

  • A total of 8 hours, comprised of four two-hour virtual sessions over 5-6 weeks
  • Between-session reading and assignments to amplify the learning and virtual experience
  • Confidential participation (Public awareness of your approaching departure is certainly not necessary)
  • The Thresholds experience is limited to a cohort of 8-10 peers experiencing the same stage of nonprofit life

Who should attend: Executive directors - mid-career - who are contemplating departure 6 - 18 months away.

Date: Tuesday, January 4, 2022 - 12:00pm to Tuesday, January 25, 2022 - 12:00pm

Shadows Fall North Film Discussion

Presented by: Empower Success Corps

Join ESC on November 15, 4:00 pm - 5:15 pm, as we discuss the documentary Shadow Fall North with filmmakers, JerriAnne Boggis, Consulting Producer and Executive Director of the Black Heritage Trail NH, and Nancy Vawter, Producer and Co-owner of Atlantic Media Productions.

Shadows Fall North, 2021 Telly Awards winner, focuses on the efforts of two dedicated historic preservationists and activists, Valerie Cunningham (coauthor of Black Portsmouth: Three Centuries of African American Heritage) of Portsmouth, NH, and JerriAnne Boggis of Milford, NH, to recover the stories of people who have been rendered nearly invisible in the historical record.

From the story of the recovery of the Portsmouth, NH African Burying Ground, to honoring the novelist Harriet Wilson of Milford, NH to the historical 1779 petition for freedom written by twenty enslaved Africans, this film brings to light many individuals whose lives and accomplishments were erased from New Hampshire’s collective memory.

OSHA's Emergency Temporary Standard on COVID Vaccinations

Presented by: McLane Middleton

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has issued an Emergency Temporary Standard imposing significant new requirements on employers with 100 or more employees regarding COVID-19 vaccination, testing, face coverings, notification, and recordkeeping. OSHA and the Biden Administration have said that this ETS is necessary to protect unvaccinated workers from the risk of contracting COVID-19 at work. The agency estimates that the ETS will result in approximately 23 million additional workers getting vaccinated, and that it will prevent thousands of deaths and hospitalizations.

On November 10, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. ET, members of McLane Middleton's Employment Law Practice Group will review these requirements in a 90 minute webinar.
