An Information Sheet for Federal Communicators, Managers, Workers, and Their Partners--Pass It On

Got a Reinvention Story, Lesson, Gripe, or Idea? Send It and We'll Post It on the Town Hall Wall

You may not be one of the more than 500 federal government reinventors who will attend the Vice President's reinvention conference in Bethesda, Maryland from March 25 - 27, but we'll post your thoughts on reinvention for all to see if you'll just fax them to us.
The conference, "The Reinvention Revolution: Reports from the Federal Front Lines," will feature a large colorful Reinvention Town Hall Wall where conference participants--and anyone else who gets in touch with us--can exchange ideas, strategies, experiences, and opinions about reinveinting government. Participants include representatives from Reinvention Labs and other federal change agents. The Wall will have four major themes:

- Lessons Learned
- Accomplishments and Successes
- Barriers and Obstacles to Change
- Ideas for Future Strategies and Directions

Fax a short write up (50 words or less) to REINVENTION TOWN HALL WALL, (301) 480-5982. Do this as soon as you can, but before the conference ends on Wednesday, March 27. You don't have to tell us your name and organization unless you want to, but we would appreciate knowing if you are a federal worker or a private citizen. After the conference, all the messages on the Wall will be collected and categorized so that we will know what is important to you.
