New Member Training: Setting Up a Scheduling Operation
Organizer: Congressional Management Foundation
This webinar is designed for all those associated with setting up and running a freshman office in the House or Senate. Setting up a scheduling operation is one of, if not the most difficult tasks for a new Member of Congress and staff. The Congressional Management Foundation conducted a survey of congressional staff working for freshman in the 116th Congress, and asked what were the most difficult tasks in setting up the office. The #1 answer (and this isn't #1 in a good way) was "setting up a scheduling operation."
We encourage/strongly implore all freshman offices to send at least ONE representative to this session where you'll gain insights not presented in any other training or venue. Presenters include two seasoned congressional schedulers offering valuable guidance on how to avoid major mishaps.
