2018 CXO Fellowship Application Period Now Open

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2017-2018 CXO Fellows Program, a continuing partnership between the CFO, CAO, CIO Councils and for the first time the CHCO Council. The mission of the CXO Fellows program is to invest in outstanding federal employees (GS 9-14) by broadening their knowledge of government management functions and foster cross-government relationships through interactive discussions and collaboration. CXO Fellows will attend a unique set of educational seminars and events sponsored by the Office of Executive Councils. There is no cost for the program and Fellows remain in their current position while participating in the year-long p rogram.
