Leadership Forum: Who’s Next in Line?

Open and FREE to all CGA Members

Brain drain. Knowledge loss crisis. Skills shortage. These are a few recent headlines describing the challenges facing industries as we prepare for the labor force effects of retiring baby boomers. CGA data shows that more than 50% of our voting committee members will be eligible to retire within the next 3 years – and we need to take action now to ensure that high-value legacy knowledge is preserved for future generations. Join leaders from our industry for an open forum exploring best practices for succession planning and knowledge transfer, what’s working (and what’s not) for knowledge sharing, and practical examples of employee engagement that can work for organizations of any size.
