Executives and managers throughout the executive branch are increasingly aware of the critical role that Congress plays in the daily operations of their organizations. To be most effective in this environment, federal employees need to better understand the various ways that Congress affects their programs.
Where to Get Started?
The Congressional Operations Seminar is the first course that most participants take with the Government Affairs Institute. This four-day core course provides a comprehensive look at how Congress affects the daily operations of departments and agencies in the executive branch. (Course Description).
Participants then work their way through our curriculum into advanced courses and workshops that target their specific professional needs.
