PDC Launches in 2024: Join Us for Professional Development Opportunities at OGC!

On January 18, 2024, the Department of Commerce’s Office of the General Counsel (OGC) launched its Professional Development Committee (PDC). This committee offers lawyers and non-lawyers alike a unique opportunity to gain insight into every corner of the Department’s operations. OGC not only allows its team to become experts in specific areas of trade and commerce law, but also provides the chance to develop skills outside of their areas of expertise.

For many of us, finding time for professional enrichment can be a challenge. However, when OGC Management asked us to Chair the PDC, we knew we couldn’t pass up the opportunity. As a staff-led committee, the PDC’s mission is to provide skills-based programming to OGC staff. This allows employees to gain exposure to the organization through participation and leadership in the PDC, as well as receive professional development support through various skills-based programming opportunities.

The PDC’s first event of 2024 was a discussion with SCOTUSblog reporter Amy Howe. She shared her insights on [description of her talk]. Amy’s discussion was [reactions to discussion]. [INSERT PHOTO FROM EVENT]

Looking ahead, the PDC has exciting plans for 2024, including a brown bag series with various OGC offices and bureaus, revamped onboarding processes, and competitive and highly entertaining Trivia Nights!

You can also review employment opportunities [link to employment opportunities page of new OGC website] or submit a resume. OGC leadership recognizes the importance of professional development for its staff, making it an attractive place for lawyers and paraprofessionals to work.
