The Stennis Fellows of the 115th Congress gathered last week for a Dialogue Retreat at the National Conservation Training Center in Shepherdstown, West Virginia.
The Stennis Fellows Program is a practical, bipartisan leadership development experience for senior-level staff of the United States Congress. Established in the 103rd Congress (1993-1994), the Stennis Fellows Program brings together chiefs of staff, committee staff directors, legislative directors, and others to explore ways to improve the effectiveness of those who work on Capitol Hill.
The program invites nationally and internationally renowned experts to meet with the Stennis Fellows and stimulate their thinking. While learning from these outside authorities is a unique opportunity, the primary benefit of the program is the learning and relationship building that takes place among the Stennis Fellows themselves.
