PSWP Workshop Request Form

PSWP workshops are tailored to the diverse professional development needs of PEF-represented and Management/Confidential (M/C) employees. This form can be used by Agency Liaisons, management representatives, or union representatives to request delivery of a workshop on behalf of your agency.

Requests for workshops will be evaluated by the PSWP Advisory Committee, which is comprised of representatives from GOER and PEF. The PSWP Advisory Committee reviews requests usually every six weeks. The entire process may take several months. Please plan accordingly.
