Succession Planning Webinar

Did you know that, according to AWCI research, 78% of wall and ceiling industry professionals are 55 and older? As many of us begin to consider a transition to life outside of our companies and transition to Generation X (and, in some cases, Millennials), the question looms: have we prepared the next generation to take over and build on our legacy—and create their own?

Gain the unique perspective of contractors currently undergoing the succession planning process and learn about some of the legal requirements of executing a smooth—and successful—leadership transition. Learn about how and when to begin crafting your company’s leadership transition and understand the critical components needed to ensure that your succession plan is successful.
