Your local politician is one of your most important partners in any community development issue. Come to this meeting and learn how to better foster a productive relationship with your elected official.

Virginia Fields and former chief of staff to Councilmember Alan Gerson (District 1), will address the process of working with local elected officials to garner support for community-driven campaigns.The combination of his past experience and his role at the Chamber of Commerce provide him with the ideal expertise to advise neighborhood advocates on how to facilitate meaningful and effective partnerships with elected representatives. This event is FREE to the public. Reservations are required as space is limited.
