Clubs & Shared Interest Groups Leadership Planning & Succession Toolkit


We have developed the Toolkit to help Club/SIG Leaders achieve superior leadership during their terms and provide organizational continuity through Leadership Succession Planning.


This Toolkit consists of suggestions and best practices to enable Club/SIG leaders to realize the following goals:

  • Provide effective leadership to help the Club/SIG become a lasting institution that is not defined by an individual’s personality traits or preferences. 

  • Develop organizational alignment with the HAA Clubs/SIGs structure.

  • Implement processes that ensure transfer of knowledge from one president to the next, so that the institutional knowledge and operational information developed over time by Clubs/SIGs is transferred to succeeding Club/SIG officers and we do not end up “reinventing the wheel” every term.

Also, access the New Leadership Checklist: A key aspect of onboarding new leadership successfully is to transition information to incoming volunteer leaders.  This handy checklist will ensure a smooth transition!
