As Mark Donnelly, board chair of Fresh Lifelines for Youth, says in this recent article
, "...whether it's to replace a founder or long-standing CEO or somebody who just up and left—always, always create a CEO transition task force!" This sample "Nonprofit CEO Transition Task Force: Roles and Responsibilities" offers an example of how a nonprofit board can approach building a task force of its own, including how to approach defining the roles of an incoming CEO and that of a founder CEO staying on in some capacity.
