Whether your state think tank is relatively new or has been around for decades, every organization should have a plan in place to ensure it is able to meet the organization’s leadership needs now and in the future. Have you considered how your organization’s leadership needs may change in the coming years? Are you building a pipeline of leaders who can fill leadership openings as they occur? Have you considered the various scenarios that might lead to a leadership transition? Do you have a plan in place to deal with an unexpected departure?

These can be daunting questions, but leadership changes are inevitable. Grappling with such questions now, proactively, dramatically lessens the odds that a leadership transition—even an unexpected one—will disrupt or derail the important work of your organization. Join this roundtable discussion and hear from current and former state think tank leaders who have navigated such transitions within their organization. Leave with some practical insights and tools you can take back to your organization to help you begin to develop—or continue to refine—an effective succession plan designed to ensure your organization’s success now and for years to come.
