    Lynda Ballroom, McCombs Campus Center
    7:00pm - 8:00pm
    One of the most difficult things that occur at the end of one term and the beginning of another is the transition between leaders. What happened last year? Is your organization reinventing the wheel every year? A thorough Leadership Transition plan will provide an organization with continuity so that next year’s officers can build on the knowledge gained rather than starting from ground zero.
