Direct Connect to Congress with the legendary Judy Schneider
Per Center for Disease Control and Prevention's recent guidelines to cancel or postpone in-person gatherings over the next 8 weeks, we decided to postpone this series. We intend to reschedule. You can contact the WGR Office for more information.
WGR is well-known in Washington for this popular event, designed to give government relations professionals’ unique insights and perspectives on the inner workings of Congress.
WGR’s “Direct Connect to Congress” features a DC legend, 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 and is co-author of Congressional Deskbook, a comprehensive resource tool frequently used by Congress and lobbyists. Judy was recognized as WGR’s Distinguished Member in 2004 and a fellowship (link) has been created in her honor.
“Judy is in a class by herself. She is as entertaining as she is knowledgeable. And she knows her topic better than anyone. ”
