Pre-Conference Session



Congress: Politics, Procedures and Power
Speaker: Walter Oleszek

Congress is the “first branch” of our national government and, like many institutions, it is constantly undergoing change. The forces of change are many—the influx of new Members, the emergence of new procedures, the needs of the time, and so on—and each can affect Congress’s lawmaking capacities in numerous ways. To provide insight and perspective on this remarkable institution—the “people’s branch”—are the goals of this pre-conference session on Congress’s lawmaking processes. To fulfill these objectives, SNA has organized a three-hour program that will help everyone to better understand the work and role of the House and Senate. Specifically, three intertwined topics (The Evolution of Power in Congress; An Act of Congress; and Congress and Groups) will be addressed by top congressional analyst and scholar, Walter Oleszek. There will be a brief break between each session.
Fee: $100
