This workshop examines the role of Congress in the effort to mobilize the support and resources required to achieve our domestic policy goals without bringing the nation to the financial brink. Through a series of 12 high-level presentations, this workshop will address the crucial domestic and international choices that lie ahead and explore how those decisions will affect not only the welfare but also the security of the United States in the years to come. Federal managers will leave this session with a clear understanding of the institutional dynamics of the Congress and how future legislative policies will shape and define public policy.
The purpose of this workshop is to sharpen our understanding of interrelated issues and to broaden our ability to operate in the political arena that defines our mission as Federal senior managers and executives.
