Turning Point

Across the province, labour market pressures and an aging workforce have created an environment where nonprofit organizations must prepare themselves for transitions in executive leadership in order to continue their vital role.

Turning Point: Creating sustainable nonprofit leadership  is the result of a multi-stage research project including a literature review and surveys of hundreds of existing and emerging leaders in Alberta's nonprofit sector.

The report summarizes the most critical steps that must be taken to address leadership in order to ensure effectiveness, resiliency and sustainability-creating quality service for all Albertans.

As a sector, we are at a decision point: do we continue to address this serious predicament in an uncoordinated fashion, or decide to develop a systematic solution? The turning point is now.
