Event Details

“I thought this was the best presentation that I have heard in two years. I think you hit a HOMERUN. I was speaking with other attendees and they thought the same thing.”
—Chief of Staff

Chiefs of Staff are perpetually looking to find top notch staff that are effective and can make their own job easier. But Member pressure, condensed timelines, constituent demands and work requirements all conspire to make finding the right staffers a difficult and sometimes haphazard task.

Join CMF and Rodgers Palmer, a principal at ghSMART, for one of our most popular programs. In this program, you will learn how to do the following:

  • Separate the right candidates from the wrong ones
  • Improve the accuracy, reliability, and speed in hiring the best staff
  • Make your hiring process more objective and help everyone agree to the right decision
“[This] program saved me a lot of time and helped me hire some great people. And, maybe more importantly, it saved me from hiring the wrong people. Even my boss likes the new process.” —Chief of Staff

This program is open to:

  • House Chiefs of Staff 
  • House Committee Staff Directors
