Volunteer Leader Succession Workshop

 Registration is closed for this event
Help preserve and maintain the future success of our trails by participating in our Volunteer Leader Succession Workshop!

Because of a short presentation on succession planning at an East Hudson Regional Trails Council meeting, people started thinking “who can succeed me even if I am not ready to step down?”


As the buzz spread, it became obvious that a similar presentation would be useful throughout the entire Trail Conference.


This event will kick off with a panel of three Local Committee Trails Chairs talking about how they assumed their positions. The workshop portion of “Passing the Torch” will include small and large group discussions with case studies.  Participants will learn what resources are available, and receive a worksheet to help develop a plan. Best of all, will be the opportunity to network with other volunteers conference wide.


Please consider attending Passing the Torch on either Friday December 7 OR Sunday December 2, 10am to 2pm at the Trail Conference Headquarters in Mahwah, NJ.  (note: the same workshop will be held on the 7th and 2nd - please attend whichever day better fits your schedule)
