Once you have registered, you will receive a link to participate in the webinar.

The Cabinet isn't in the Constitution, but every president since George Washington has worked with a Cabinet. So where did it come from? Join Dr. Lindsay Chervinsky to learn about the origins of the president's Cabinet, how Washington drew on his leadership practices from the Revolutionary War to shape this institution, and the important and often-overlooked legacy he left for his successors.  Chervinsky will also explore some of the best and worst Cabinets in  American history, share how the institution has evolved over time, and why the Cabinet still matters today.

Dr. Chervinsky is an expert in the cabinet, presidential history, and U.S. government institutions. Currently, she is serving as Scholar in Residence at the Institute for Thomas Paine Studies at Iona College and Senior Fellow at the International Center for Jefferson Studies.
