Director’s Desk


Welcome to our May newsletter. This month, Senior Fellow Laura Blessing has a great piece for you on the tough issues facing the Joint Select Committee on Budget Process Reform. Before we get to that, I just wanted to highlight some of the excellent classes we have coming up this spring and summer.

Our next Congressional Operations Seminar kicks off June 11. We also have tailored versions of this class for the Intelligence Community, Navy, Forest Service and Presidential Management Fellows coming up in May and June. If you’re ready for some more advanced training, we can take you on a deep dive into Legislative Process or Budget and Appropriations Process .  And our workshops on Working and Communicating With Congress and Preparing and Delivering Testimony are around the corner if you prefer a more interactive experience.

You can always find more information on our website, and feel free to reach out to me any time with questions or special requests.

Thanks for reading,

Kristin Nicholson
