One needn't stick around to establish and maintain a working framework 
for such - continuity and knowledge-transfer sounds rather like 
consistency and maintainability of code, where if it is well set up and 
documented anyone can reasonably pick up where someone else left off.

So to ensure that there is continuity between events from year to year, 
the important thing would be the framework and that what was done gets 
written down - and in an organised and consistent fashion. That way 
never mind who it is in this position, the future organisers should 
still be able to find stuff from previous events as well, pick up where 
others left off, and continue from there.
