Succession planning is something that most of us think about as a long-term process with mid- to distant-future outcomes. But what happens when:

• your Assistant Director suddenly announces her early retirement, effective in two weeks?
• a key department manager unexpectedly moves out of state?

Succession planning is a form of risk management, and in order to be effective, particularly in an emergency situation, the process should start before you need it. During this interactive session, webinar participants will learn how to create an emergency succession plan for critical library positions, including being able to identify the positions for which such a plan is needed and being able to assess your library’s risk of losing key staff.

To get the most out of this presentation, be sure to download handouts in advance and be prepared to work on a plan during the webinar.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, attendees will have created an Emergency Succession Plan for one position. They will also be able to:

• define the steps needed to create an emergency succession plan.
• identify the positions for which an emergency succession plan is needed.
• create an emergency succession plan for a critical library position.
• assess the risk of losing key staff.

This webinar will be of interest to staff in all types of libraries, those involved in library leadership, library directors, human resources and training and development staff, and members of Boards of Trustees will benefit from this webinar.

This webinar is free of charge and required no preregistration. Visit the link above beginning at 2:30 PM on November 2 to join in.
