For La Follette School students, faculty, and staff only
Mark Hadley (MA '97), deputy director of the U.S. Congressional Budget Office (CBO), will share his insights and answer questions about working in the federal government. Immediately following graduation from the La Follette School in 1997, Hadley served as a presidential management intern at the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). In a 2006 interview, he said his summer internship at the Federal Reserve Board helped him secure the SBA internship.
Hadley began his career at the CBO in 1998 as an analyst in the Budget Analysis Division, focusing on deposit insurance, aviation, and commerce. In 2003, he received his law degree from the George Washington University Law School and then worked for the global law firm Jones Day for a few years. He returned to the CBO in 2006 as deputy general counsel before being named general counsel in 2008.
Hadley, who also will be a guest speaker in Evidence-Based Policymaking (in the La Follette School Conference Room) from 2:30 to 4:30 Thursday, is on campus to participate in the the opening conference of the Tommy G. Thompson Center on Public Leadership at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Leadership Across the Branches, a daylong public event, is Friday, November 17 at the Fluno Center, 601 University Avenue. Joining Hadley on the panel discussion Leadership in Congress will be Paul Carver, a former policy adviser to U.S. Rep. David Obey (1969-2011); U.S. Rep. Glenn Grothman; and former U.S. Rep. Scott Klug (1991-99).
