1 Officer Transitions Jake Haigis Meredith Beamer

2 A thorough and intentional leadership transition plan will provide an organization with continuity so that next year’s officers can build on the knowledge gained rather than starting from ground zero. We aim to provide ideas and suggestions for you. Take pieces that will work for your group. Goal

3  Get into groups of three and place a blindfold on one person  The two without the blindfold will instruct the person without sight on how to construct a Play-doh figure exactly the way it is pictured on the next slide  Instructors may not physically touch the Play-doh  Instructors can NOT name the object to be built!  Good luck!
