Executive Director Personal Statement

Upon the departure of an Executive Director, it is important for the ED and Board to send out a departing statement. The statement n not only needs to inform others of the ED’s departure but also assure funders, staff, members, partners and other stakeholders that the organization is at the beginning of a smooth transition. TREC offers this sample for EDs and Boards alike to consider their own statements.

TREC is committed to providing new and pertinent information, tools, and samples to meet your Human Resources (HR) needs. Please note that this resource is not intended to be all-inclusive; we make every effort to present thorough and accurate information. However, numerous federal, state and local laws and regulations may vary regarding some of the issues; we encourage all organizations to review local laws and regulations and seek legal counsel when implementing new HR policies and procedures.
