Moving From In-Person To Online Events: How to Transform Traditional Conferences and Training for Government

Conferences are being canceled and training budgets have been trimmed, but government personnel still need to learn the latest developments in their areas of expertise. That's the crux of the problem facing agency leaders and human resources professionals that want to sustain a top-notch government workforce. Moving in-person events and training to an online forum is one solution, but it's not always easy to do it well. In this online training, virtual events experts from GovLoop and the Centers for for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will:

  • Reveal the results of a survey of nearly 350 public sector professionals and their view on virtual events and training in government.

  • Highlight leading practices and lessons learned based on GovLoop's experience running dozens of successful webinars, a virtual conference, a virtual career fair, a social learning pilot course and a hybrid, government-wide mentoring program.

  • Share two recent case studies: GovLoop's work with the U.S. Office of Personnel Management in converting a two-day, classroom-based course as well as CDC's initiative to transform a traditional, in-person conference to online delivery, highlighting the exceptional results achieved in each example.

This online training will mark the unofficial launch of a new Government Virtual Events Community of Practice that is designed to start and sustain an ongoing conversation about virtual events and training in government. It will also announce and explain GovLoop's ability to offer Continuing Professional Education (CPEs) for both in-person and online trainings.

This is a training you won't want to miss, especially if you are in any way involved  with training or events for your agency. Be sure to register today.
