CORE Alberta hosted an event on April 27, 2021 with guest speakers —Angela Clarke from Trellis and James Stauch and Cordelia Snowdon from the Institute for Community Prosperity at Mount Royal University— presenting on the Trellis merger and a framework that can support non-profit organizations that might be considering one as well. You can access the full two part report here and some of the questions addressed in the session include:
What kinds of conditions need to be present for mergers to succeed?
What are the important considerations during planning and implementation, from staffing and front-line service to communications and culture, and what are the potential hazards and roadblocks?
What are the roles of boards, funders, and consultants?
Can we expect a widespread wave of nonprofit mergers in the post-COVID era?
What does "grieving legacies" look like and how it can be supported.
