Selection for Managing by Network is competitive. Space is limited to 120 seats for this interagency course.

Applications for National Scholarships are due November 1, 2017. Open Seats are available through December 15, 2017.

If your position requires supervisor approval to participate in this course, please ask your Supervisor to review the requirements for Managing by Network and complete the Supervisor Recommendation Form.
