Wednesday, March 20, 2024 (12:00 PM - 1:00 PM) (EDT)


Every four years, the Presidential transition from one administration to another presents the Federal Government with one of its most daunting challenges. The planning for this enormous undertaking starts months before the actual election and swearing-in of the President. Behind the scenes, this change has a profound impact on how the Departments function and how they address immediate needs and plan for the future. It is not just a change in leadership, but a change in direction. The actions taken behind the scenes are crucial to ensure a smooth transition and maintain stability in our government. It is imperative to understand and appreciate the significance of this change, not only for those who work in the Federal government but also for those who work alongside them. The Presidential transition is a time of great opportunity, but also of great risk. Let us explore together the behind-the-scenes actions and the impact they have so that we can move forward with confidence and purpose. It is not business as usual, but it is an opportunity for growth and progress.
