BIG is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, professional development association that represents more than 2.5 million African-Americans employed in Federal, state, and local governments. For the past two decades, BIG has provided training at the national level to promote greater career advancement for African American public servants. This year's workshops and special sessions will feature noted lecturers, elected officials, national leaders, and policy makers. Some of the topics that will be covered are information technology, communication skills, career development, personal performance and productivity, management and leadership skills, human resources and EEO.

The conference will provide agencies with an opportunity to participate in discussions on a wide range of career development issues of interest to the Federal public sector. The U.S. Office of Personnel Management supports the Blacks in Government efforts and sees the conference as a viable training tool and resource.
