Lots of really good ideas here. Amanda has some gems in there as well.
I think getting a formal OMB memo granting formal seal of approval for GovLoop is probably a long time coming…change takes a lot of time and also I really think the value of Govloop is that it is more than just federal but state and local as well.
One idea that I’m working on is getting approval in the ways association get tacit approval from head government as a good place to meet and learn about various topics. They show this approval by validating their training, having their reps talk there, and generally saying good things about it. GovLoop already has a lot of this going for it – lots of senior officials are on the site and talk good about the site. But would be good to get even more of this and consolidate it.
