Generative AI (GenAI) is a tool that can be added to a congressional staffer’s toolbox to increase capacity and effectiveness. From assisting with background research in preparation for a constituent meeting or summarizing lengthy reports from an executive branch agency, to cutting down on the time it takes to draft responses to constituent mail, GenAI can empower your office to help more constituents and make better informed policy choices.

In the brief break prior to Thanksgiving, POPVOX Foundation and the R Street Institute invite you to spend some of your recess time to join us for a virtual introductory training on how to finally take the plunge and get familiar with generative AI.

This discussion will include:

  • An overview of the House approved tools and guidance
  • Best practices for your comms team and office to adopt
  • Use cases to get your creative juices flowing
  • Tips, tricks, and recommendations for how GenAI can take your comms shop to the next level
