Top 5 Transition Issues in Program Management
What do I do when the only BIA representative on staff decides to leave our program without anyone else authorized to practice and continue representing the existing caseload? What’s involved in hiring our nonprofit’s first attorney on staff? What needs to be done if the new Program Director doesn’t know immigration law? What can be done proactively or reactively if we lose our one big grant?
Staff and resource transitions are not uncommon in the life of an immigration program. Unfortunately, not enough programs plan ahead to prevent from losing its ability to practice immigration law through an authorized representative when there’s staff turnover or when revenue streams fluctuate. We hope to address a few complicated scenarios that programs have faced in our network. Presenters will pinpoint the challenges, offer solutions, and share best practices on how to tackle these scenarios head on so services can continue without interruption.
