How to Strategically Schedule Your Boss’ Time

The boss’ time is THE most precious resource in every congressional office and it is the Schedulers who make the critical decisions about how to best use that valuable (and limited!) resource. With this in mind, we’ve compiled the best approaches CMF has learned from working with offices for 40+ years, with a focus on applying routine criteria to the onslaught of scheduling requests.

This webinar session will provide an overview of the updated, Scheduler-focused content on CMF’s Office Toolkit, including resources to:

  • Evaluate the many scheduling requests your office receives to create a schedule that reflects and supports your office’s strategic goals;
  • Determine how to make the most of the inevitable travel time in your boss’ schedule; and
  • Plan successful events that will garner press attention … and make the boss happy!
