Please join us in celebration of Dwight Inks’ 50 years of public service through a discussion and review of:
With Courage and Conviction
Written by Dwight A. Ink and Kurt M. Thurmaier
Thursday, March 15, 2018
With Courage and Conviction presents Dwight’s successful management strategies in his 50 years of public service in the context of nine especially important achievements in his career, including the Alaska Recovery and Nixon’s New Federalism initiative. A panel of Fellows will review and critique the book’s thesis that Dwight’s successful management strategies are relevant to current public service professionals despite the current toxic climate.
Moderated by Kurt Thurmaier, our panelists will discuss the efficacy of Dwight’s strategies for current SES and other senior federal officers. There will also be opportunity to purchase the book at a discounted rate.
