                New programs, improved programs, and a new location! The Federal Employment Law Training Group is back
with a Spring 2010 calendar providing 30 full days of training designed especially for federal sector employment and labor law
practitioners, HR and EEO Specialists, and union representatives at all levels of experience.

FELTG offers a wide array of trainings that includes the ever-popular MSPB Law Week and EEOC Law Week. Specialty Practices
Week has been entirely revised to include two days of legal writing, an EEOC & MSPB Update, a day of whistleblowing and repri-
sal issues, and a new day focused on Final Agency Decisions. For the first time, FELTG also offers FLRA Law Week, with an
in-depth look at labor relations, collective bargaining negotiations and arbitration. Advocacy Week: Litigating before the MSPB
& EEOC features the FELTG team and focuses on effective litigation in those forums. Finally, our new Civil Service Institute is
back after its 2009 debut offering a special, week-long intensive training course that is a must for any staff or attorneys who are
new to the field, and those seeking to advance their understanding of core civil service topics.

FELTG’s new home is the International Student House in Washington, D.C. Located conveniently off Dupont Circle, ISH offers a
unique setting in a Tudor-style mansion that provides housing to international students engaging in graduate work, research,
professional training and internships at some of the nation’s most prestigious universities and institutions. All FELTG’s spring
seminars will be conducted at ISH. For a preview of FELTG’s new home, visit their website at www.ishdc.org.

                                                           At FELTG, we’re always making an effort to improve our programs and ad-

         reasonable accommodation                          for ways to bring you information about developments in the field of federal
                                                           employment law without burying you, and our planet, in paper. So, here are
                                                           some of the things we’re doing.

                                                           In an effort to reduce waste, we’ve streamlined our flyer to use less paper.
                                                           Our usual flyer, with hour-by-hour agendas and printable registration forms,
                                                           is still available in PDF form on our website. Others “go green” by giving
                                                           training materials in PDF form so you can print them out and bring them.
                                                           That doesn’t save paper; it saves the cost of printing training materials and
                                                           shifts that burden to you. At FELTG, we’re committed to providing you with
                                                           the same quality, printed training materials we always have.

                                                           In other efforts to improve the quality of information we bring to you, our
                                                           website is being entirely redesigned. You’ll find us at the same old place,

                                                           want. As of January, our periodic email newsletters will be moving to a twice-
