In FY 2019, Alan L. Freed Associates is offering a menu of one-day field programs that can be presented at military installations around the United States. The format for each field program is identical to the programs held on Capitol Hill. Please note that each program can be modified to address specific areas of concern to individual agencies/organizations.
There is no doubt that there are significant tensions between the Republican Congress and the White House. The Republican Party is deeply divided and the Democratic Party is remarkably united in opposition—and therein lies the problem facing policymakers in Washington. Deeply partisan divisions over tax and spending, immigration, energy, health, trade, defense and foreign policy demand serious attention, while rapidly changing global events, from Syria to North Korea, compound the difficulties facing the 115th Congress.
Attendees at this one-day Capitol Hill Workshop will have the opportunity to discuss these and other critical issues in an off-the-record setting featuring a group of nationally recognized speakers who are experienced in all aspects of the national policymaking process.
- Power and Partisanship: Reflections on How Washington Actually Works
- The Congressional Process: Strategic Lawmaking on Capitol Hill
- The Evolution of Leadership and Power on Capitol Hill
- Lawmaking and the Role of Congressional Staff
- National Security and the Defense Budget
- Why Politicians Seldom See the World As It Really Is
- The Politics of Border Security
- Emerging Threats Facing Congress: A Global Assessment
*The above topics may change to address current events at the time of the seminar.
