Meet Jeff McNichols, the lead for the Partnership for Public Service's new Alliance for Congress.

The Alliance for Congress supports a more effective Congress that better meets the country’s diverse needs and interests. The Alliance will build on the Partnership’s two decades of experience working with the federal workforce and government agencies to increase collaboration, accountability, efficiency and innovation. In working with Congress, the Alliance will promote the importance of public service and stewardship, and champion common sense, nonpartisan improvements to make Congress a more capable and effective institution. This means professionalizing and maintaining a competent, diverse workforce on the Hill supporting our elected leaders. It also means fixing problems, working through the daily issues facing professional staff.

Working collaboratively with individuals and organizations, the Alliance will offer insights into why a well-functioning Congress matters, recognize what it does well, elevate new and diverse voices and provide critical resources to lawmakers and staff to help them build an institution that can more fully represent and serve the interests of our nation.
