Legislative Operations for Congressional Staff

In 2016 The Congressional Management Foundation (CMF) and the Government Affairs Institute (GAI) at Georgetown University launched the joint multi-day training in “Legislative Operations for Congressional Staff”. We are pleased to announce that another iteration of this successful session will be conducted again in early 2018.

The course is designed for current legislative staff who want to deepen their skill sets or move into management and interns looking for a permanent Hill job.  Topics will include:

  • Developing floor vote recommendations, conducting legislative research, writing briefing memos, answering constituent mail, and performing other basic legislative functions;
  • Working with executive agencies, advocacy organizations, and other outside groups to accomplish the Member’s goals;
  • Creating an effective mail system and managing staff;
  • Demystifying the Rules and Appropriations Committees and staffing the Member’s committee assignments.
