Hi Steve,

I'm trying to create a platform as part of an initiative to highlight the value of succession planning in the federal workforce. Recently, I co-authored an article and wrote my dissertation about the subject matter (see attached). I've contacted members of the House of Representatives but haven't had any success promoting the issue. Do you have any contacts or suggestions on how I can elevate the discussion? Succession planning is a low-hanging fruit in terms of deficit reduction potential, and in this fiscal climate, Congress should explore all avenues of debt reduction, including making investments in human capital.
