Transition Committee: Focus and Next Steps
Last week, I announced that I have formed a Transition Committee to ensure a smooth progression to new operational leadership as we move into 2015.
I want to stress that the focus of this committee is on planning and preparing for new operational leadership at SLA headquarters, and as such it is being managed by a small group of members currently serving on the Board of Directors and the Finance Committee. As we turn our attention to selecting a new permanent leader for the association, we will reach out to engage SLA members in that process.
As I noted previously, the committee’s charge is to—
- Prepare recommendations for the board on transition and succession planning for the executive officer;
- Prepare a plan for hiring a new executive officer, including a recommendation on the charge for a Hiring Task Force;
- Develop a draft compensation and executive officer review policy; and
- Develop a communications plan in collaboration with SLA staff.
The Transition Committee is currently reviewing and evaluating what the best operational leadership scenario will look like for the next 12-24 months, and will be presenting options to the full board in December. In the meantime, I welcome your ideas and suggestions. Please send your thoughts to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
