Say “succession plan” and you likely will get a lot of head-nodding by association CEOs and board members.

But when Gary LaBranche’s former employer asked him several years ago to prepare one, he found little to go on. His fellow CEOs had as many questions as he did, and there wasn’t much literature on the subject to guide him.

No more.

LaBranche’s new book, “The Association CEO Succession Toolkit,” will be released in just over a week at the ASAE Annual Meeting & Exposition in Chicago. The publisher is ASAE Association Management Press.
