National Press Club members and their guests are invited to participate in an August 9 dialogue on how to prepare for their company’s Congressional testimony. Barks Communications President Ed Barks will lead the discussion.

The discussion will touch on strategies for preparation and ongoing improvement.

  • Date: Thursday, August 9, 2018
  • Time: 8 -9 a.m.
  • Place: National Press Club; 529 14th Street, NW; Washington, D.C.
