Get on Board: Workshop & Speaker Series

‘Get on Board’ with the arts sector with our series of sessions and networking events.

Our Get on Board Leadership Sessions & Speaker Series provides opportunities for volunteer arts board leaders, and those who wish to join arts boards, to enhance their knowledge of the sector and the art of good governance. Arts board members are among our community’s most important volunteers: ensuring through their guidance and support that Toronto maintains an unsurpassed variety of creative organizations and opportunities, available to all.

Arts professional Michelle Yeung leads Creative Champions Network and programs and facilitates its sessions and events. She has extensive experience in the non-profit sector and served on many arts boards. Creative Champions Network was previously led by Jini Stolk.

What Happens When People Leave? 
April 4, 2023
12:00 - 1:00 p.m.

This is an online event. REGISTER via Eventbrite

Planning for succession and leadership transition guarantees the stability and health of arts organizations, yet arts leaders and board members are not often prepared for what happens when people leave.

Planning for transition not only ensures the continuity of an organization’s mission and work, but having a process and plan in place prevents institutional memory loss and reduces risk. If leadership transition requires an organizational change or shift, we must first look inwards to identify internal needs before engaging externally.

How are we preparing ourselves for this inevitable evolution?

This interactive panel discussion, What Happens When People Leave? will focus on leadership succession - a key board responsibility. The session will feature three arts organizations who have recently undergone leadership change. We will explore these cases, dive into their successes and challenges, and learn of their journeys to inform and kick start our own organizational planning.
