The States of Our Union: How Administrations Work with State and Local Partners to Achieve Change

Modern presidents come into office promising national change in areas such as education, health care, immigration and infrastructure. While a candidate may win an election based on promises, an administration must prioritize building and renewing relationships across all levels of government to generate support for its agenda. 

The Partnership for Public Service’s Center for Presidential Transition® and Deloitte spoke with officials from the current and last three presidential administrations as well as associations representing state and local interests to develop a resource for a presidential administration starting a new term—or repositioning for a second term—to set itself up for successful relationships with state and local partners.

Join us on Thursday, Sept. 14 for the launch event of a new resource titled, “The States of Our Union: How Administrations Work with State and Local Partners to Achieve Change“. You will hear about how intergovernmental relationships affect an administration’s ability to make progress and the practices that lead to effective collaboration
