Officer Training and Transition Manual

Tired of reinventing the wheel? Often times organizations spend little time in the transition stage and consequently new officers spend too much of their time acclimating to their newly-elected position. A smooth officer transition will not only improve the abilities of newly-elected officers, it will decrease the amount of time each officer spends “learning” his position. Through an effective transition, the incoming officers will be able to learn from the experience of the previous officers and offer continuity and continued growth for the organization.

The transition of leadership for your organization is the single most important event in a viable student organization’s year. It can be smooth or a complete disaster, and may determine the effectiveness of the group for years to come.
