Chief Learning Officers Council (CLOC)


The Interagency Chief Learning Officer Council is a central body comprised of Chief Learning Officers (CLO) or their equivalents that meet periodically to share best practices and create engaging learning opportunities for U.S. Government agencies and organizations. Through interagency collaboration, we strive to leverage cost effective learning opportunities that promote high performance and can be implemented throughout the federal government. Our mission is to collaborate with and between our member agencies for the express purposes of sharing best practices, influencing policy, and maximizing the use of finite government resources to deliver effective and engaging learning and development opportunities to all U.S. Government employees. The CLO Council agenda and initiatives are driven by the collective will of its members and thereby speak with one voice. The Council maintains the highest ethical standards, while treating its members with respect and valuing their input in all decisions and initiatives.

Through a Memorandum of Understanding with CHCO Council, the CLOC formally serves as an Advisory Committee and has generated measurable results to support the CHCOs and OPM on workforce development.  Karlease Kelly, Deputy CHCO, USDA, currently chairs the CLOC.
