Agency Forums Information

Greetings Agency Point of Contact,

The planning is underway for our Blacks In Government (BIG) 43rd Annual National Training Institute (NTI) in Cleveland, OH, which will be Face-to-Face this year while observing CDC guidance for COVID-19. This letter serves as a formal invitation for your agency to present a forum as part of the NTI’s Agency Forums Program (AFP). The NTI will be held during the week of August 15-18, 2022. This year’s conference theme is “BIG 2022: Training in a Transformed Workplace – Providing Innovative Professional Development

The BIG NTI is widely recognized as one of the most effective training experiences available to both public and private sector employees. Training is offered in a wide range of timely subjects that are informative and relevant to current trends and initiatives affecting job performance.

The AFP is executed during the first two days of the NTI:

Monday, August 15, 2022, 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p. m.
Tuesday, August 16, 2022, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

We look forward to your favorable response. Please provide BIG with the following support to ensure that the Agency Forums Program is successful and productive.
