Manager vacancies are increasingly common, with many long-term managers contemplating retirement and others taking advantage of a very hot labor market.  With tight budgets and lean staffing, most municipalities do not have the luxury of grooming a clear heir apparent.  But there are some things you can do now to prepare, and there are certainly best practices that you can consider if your municipal or authority manager position becomes vacant.

On October 7, 2021 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM, McNees Labor Attorney Adam Santucci will moderate a Webinar addressing manager succession planning. The discussion will feature Brooke Queenan and David Anthony of Keystone Municipal Solutions.  Brooke regularly assists municipalities with recruiting for managers, and David recently retired after over 30 years of municipal leadership experience.
