Nonprofit Leadership Transitions


  • June 6, 2024
  • 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Leadership transitions are an inevitable part of every nonprofit’s life cycle.  While these transitions can be daunting and often carry an emotional weight, the leadership transition and development process can benefit both the people involved and the organization. Transitioning from one nonprofit leader to another is an opportunity for investing in your overall organizational strategy and growth. Leadership transition is a time-bound, four-phase transition from one leader to another.  Join us to learn about preparing for an upcoming leadership change, setting yourself up for a successful search process, and onboarding your new leader for short-term and long-term success.

This workshop will have closed captioning available through the online service

Portrait of Mario Hernandez

Mario Hernandez

I’m a firm believer of nonprofits’ ability to build and sustain a more just society. I’ve been in the sector for nearly 20 years and have served in numerous executive leadership and board roles—executive director, vice president and chief operating office, board chair, board vice chair, and board treasurer. I’m excited to share what I’ve learned leading organizations with other current and emerging nonprofit leaders. I enjoy talking strategy, methodical operation plans and marketing campaigns, collective impact through collaboration, inclusive leadership development, and paying for it all through sustainable business models. St. Paul is my home. I enjoy conversations during a bike ride. Family and connection to community matter to me.
