Renewing America’s Civil Service Town Hall

Friday, April 13, 2018

Register for this event

Please join us on Wednesday, May 9, 2018, for a town hall discussion on Renewing America’s Civil Service. The town hall will commemorate the 40th anniversary of the 1978 Civil Service Reform Act—which was the last time Congress passed major reforms to the federal civil service system.

The Volcker Alliance and the Partnership for Public Service will lead a constructive discussion about what is needed to modernize the outdated federal personnel system and help build a high-performing government that can effectively address the significant challenges facing our country.

The town hall will take place during Public Service Recognition Week (May 6-12, 2018), an annual celebration of the women and men who serve our nation as federal, state and local government employees. This event is open to all government employees and the general public.

Register below to attend in person or via live-stream. If you would like to submit a question for our speakers in advance, please email Courtney Liss at
