Webinar: The Perceptions of Past and Current UCEDD Directors on Transitioning in and out of the Role of UCEDD Director

Thursday, September 6, 2012
4:00pm - 5:00pm
Location: webinar

Several UCEDDs across the country have recently experienced transitions of new leadership, as directors retire or pursue new professional opportunities. Transitions in general can by stressful, but transitions of directors, especially individuals who have held the position for a long period, can present particular challenges to a program. This webinar will present findings from a series of interviews of UCEDD Directors who have retired or left their program in the past five years and of Directors who have stepped into those positions in that same period.
