If you or a family member has ever considered running for office or even just joining a board or commission, then this crash course might be right for you. The Lubbock Chamber of Commerce is hosting a Civic and Public Leadership Academy on Tues., Aug. 29, from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. at First United Bank (4th and Frankford).
The workshop will emphasize public service and candidacy process. The program will be non-partisan in nature and provide a nuts-and-bolts overview of what Lubbock County residents need to know to run for office, or how to participate in campaigns for issue-based ballot measures. Facilitators and guest speakers will include Mike Stevens, co-owner of Action Printing; Kim Davis, owner of Nomiss Communications, City Secretary Becky Garza and many more.
The cost of the workshop is $35. Chamber members get a discounted price of $25. The event is open to any civically-minded citizen of Lubbock County. Registration is required as space is limited. Register at LubbockChamber.com or call (806) 761-7000.
