Event Description

Direct Connect to Congress was designed by Women in Government Relations (WGR) to give unique insights and perspectives on the inner workings of Congress. This year's mini-session will feature a three-hour class that will examine congressional procedure used by Members of Congress in the House and Senate.

WGR's program features a Washington DC Legend, and WGR Emeritus Member, Judy Schneider, a specialist on Congress and a former House and Senate committee staffer. She has taught hundreds of Members of Congress and their staff on Congressional procedure. Schneider is also co-author of Congressional Deskbook, a comprehensive resource tool frequently used by Congress and lobbyists.
