SEA Professional Development League
The SEA Professional Development League, founded in 1981, is a non-profit educational organization which is committed to advancing the professionalism of career federal executives through the sponsorship of training and recognition activities and research. PDL activities are open to all career federal executives, irrespective of whether they hold membership in SEA.
PDL sponsors high-caliber professional development events, including an annual career executive leadership conference and seminars on relevant executive topics. PDL also sponsors an annual Presidential Distinguished Rank awards banquet, to honor Senior Executive Service members who have won the highest federal civil service award, and a "Morning of Reflections" which brings these executives together to discuss their experiences and views of the future.
