Webinar "Succession Planning for Local Secular Groups"

Nicholas Carrillo

Nicholas Carrillo earned a B.A. in Communication at California State University Los Angeles, where he served in the student government as their Vice President for External Affairs where he recruited and trained students to engage in statewide policy advocacy for higher education. In addition, he worked as an ambassador for Cal State L.A.’s office of outreach and recruitment where he supported students from marginalized communities with applying for financial aid, scholarships, and college admissions. Nicholas also worked to increase voter turnout in under served communities and organized open political forums for students as a founding officer for the Young Progressives.



Many secular communities face the challenge of long-term sustainability in the face of changes in leadership. Often, when a leader step down or moves away, groups struggle to continue growing the community because they cannot find someone both willing and qualified to take on a leadership role. Succession planning, when incorporated as a best practice, can prevent this from happening, and as a result ensure that all the work you've done to build a secular community from the ground up will continue to grow for years to come. 

Kennisha Entsminger, president of the Secular Student Alliance chapter at Iowa State University, one of the longest-running and active secular student groups in the country,  and Nicholas Carrillo, Campus Organizer at national Secular Student Alliance office, will guide you through how to institutionalize succession planning in your group.
