Standing Panel on Public Service Meeting: September 23, 2020

Wednesday, September 23, 2020 (all day)

As happens every 4 years, the United States is engaged in the Presidential election cycle. As required by law, there will be a Presidential transition to a new administration or to a second-term administration. What is involved in ensuring a successful Presidential transition? How can the Academy inform and advise incoming political appointees?

Join the Academy’s Standing Panel on the Public Service as three Academy Fellows discuss important aspects of the upcoming Presidential transition.

  • Dr. Martha Kumar will describe the major elements and roles found in Presidential transitions and provide insights into how both campaigns are preparing for the upcoming transition period, post-election.
  • Vince Micone will share his experience and “lessons learned” from leading a cabinet agency through a recent Presidential transition.
  • Jeff Neal will discuss the recently published Academy Report, Election 2020: Modernize and Reinvigorate the Public Workforce, with advice for new political appointees during the Presidential transition period and in the early days of the administration.
