State, County and Nonprofit Alumni
Managing by Network is an interagency course designed for Federal Employees involved in the emerging professional field of partnership and community collaboration. Partnership management and stakeholder engagement have changed since the course was launched in 2008.
Now, participants from state, county, nonprofit, and independent organizations often take an active role in public land, conservation, and recreational issues. Peer learning is enriched with participants who represent agencies and organizations that often work in partnership with the BLM, NPS, USFWS, USFS, and other federal agencies.
