Attention all crafty, connected GovLoopers...
What are the best upcoming continuing education and/or professional development events in 2012?
Ideally the conference(s) are focused on management, business intelligence, transparency, and governance issues, while also budget-friendly given the continuing financial crunch.
For example, the 2012 MDMS event below features best-selling authors Dave Norton, Dan Pink, and Mark Aesch. It also features strategic planning and performance management case studies from OMB, the US Treasury, FAA, and the City of Durham, NC.
The best part is the discounted pricing through partners organizations like these:
$100 off registration for FedManagers Association members (FMA)
$100 off registration by using the BoardSource promo code MDMS2012BS
$100 off registration by using the Charity Navigator promo code
