Graphic by Owensboro Times

The Marilyn and William Young Foundation will host a free professional development opportunity for local nonprofit organizations on December 8, with training provided by the Center for Nonprofit Excellence.  

This training will be offered to nonprofit board members and staff, and includes a 90-minute training session with the opportunity for networking among participants. The event is endorsed and co-hosted by the Green River Area Community Foundation, United Way of the Ohio Valley, and Kentucky Wesleyan College.

The training will offer a focus specific to “Succession Planning for Nonprofit Organizations.”

“By offering this opportunity locally, the Young Foundation hopes to help community organizations anticipate inevitable transitions and to navigate these changes effectively,” said Madison Silvert, chair for Leadership Initiatives with the Foundation. “Whether a key employee moves on to a new opportunity, retires or passes away, it is vital that governing boards plan and prepare for these changes within their organizations.”

Organizations interested in attending the training can choose from a morning session (10-11:30) or afternoon session (1-2:30). Coffee/networking will be offered 9:30-10, and a networking luncheon will be held from 11:30-1.

Sessions will take place in the Young Auditorium of the Jack T. Wells Activity Center at Kentucky Wesleyan College. Attendance is limited to 80 participants at each session, and advanced registration is required. 

To register for a session, contact Melissa Ashby at [email protected] by December 2.
