Do you need to understand, or train others in, how a bill becomes law, basic congressional operations, the amendment tree or where in the legislative and public policy process you can have an impact? Do you have questions about Capitol Hill dynamics that no one can answer (or that you’re too afraid to ask)?
If your job requires you to understand and follow legislation, or if you’re new to government affairs, here’s your chance to get up to speed in one information-packed day.
This seminar provides an in-depth examination of congressional operations, House and Senate legislative procedures, the work of committees, floor procedures, reconciliation of differences between houses and presidential action.
June 3, 2011, 9 am – 4:30 pm
Approved for 0.6 CEUs from George Mason University.
Where: DC Bar Conference Center, 1101 K Street NW, Suite 200 (12th and K Streets NW), Washington, DC (McPherson Square station)
