As the new administration settles in, staffers in federal government and private sector governmental affairs offices and foreign delegations in Washington and around the country are staking their future on what will change, what will remain the same, and how to advance their agenda. TheCapitol.Net presents a nuts-and-bolts look at how to get through the bureaucracy and get what you need accomplished: White House Workshop: Players, Politics & Policy.
Aimed at those with some experience navigating the Washington labyrinth, the two-day intensive workshop at the Goethe-Institut in downtown Washington, DC, March 3-4, 2009, offers an intimate, small-group setting to participate in informative and action-oriented sessions on such topics as…

  • Formulating Foreign Policy: The President, Cabinet, and Congress
  • How Federal Agencies Handle Congressional Relations

All faculty are subject matter experts on specific aspects of Executive Branch policies and procedures. As a special bonus, a representative from a federal agency’s congressional liaison office will discuss the role of this office and how to build positive working relationships with Congress.
You Will Learn How To:

  • Reach key players in the current administration
