As the country transitions to a new administration and Congress, this is an opportune time to learn about how the federal budget process works and the challenges facing the White House, Congress, and the federal agencies in shaping funding decisions. If you receive federal funding, this seminar will be of particular interest.
The UCAR President’s Office and the NCAR Directorate invite all interested staff to attend this seminar. It will be an opportunity to learn more about the the numerous forces that shape the federal budget and appropriations cycle and possible implications for the weather, water, and climate enterprise. The seminar will also examine how UCAR demonstrates the importance of our research on Capitol Hill.
Much of the time will be allocated for Q&A so we encourage you to submit questions ahead of time so we can make sure these are covered during the course of the session. Please submit questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
