Transitions: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

Presented by Matt Grobert, The Falcon Group

With transitions on the rise many managers are facing boards giving push back at the thought of hiring a professional.  These presentation is meant to educate and enlighten boards on the risks of not hiring a professional.  To show them that this is the time to set the association up right.  That they can run the risk of major failures and expenses down the road if they do not nip issues in the bud and what happens when they skimp of this process and statute of limitations runs out.  This would be great to combine with an attorney.  An onsite visit would be something that would really show what is involved.
Learning Objectives:
1. Why a professional in the industry is necessary. 
2. What the process entails and the level of detail.  
3. What is involved in litigation if it does come to that.
