LEARN HOW TO GET INVOLVED IN YOUR LOCAL COMMUNITY
Civic Park Community Center Social Hall, 1375 Civic Dr., Walnut Creek
October 12th, 6:30 pm
Ever considered getting involved in your local community as an appointee to a board or commission? Want to know more about how the process works? How do you navigate the process and who can help? This is your opportunity!!!
Join California Women Lead and State Assemblywoman Catharine Baker on “October 12th, 6:30 pm” at Civic Park Community Center Social Hall (1375 Civic Dr., Walnut Creek) for an appointments training. You will learn the process that one should take to be appointed to a board/commission/committee at the local and state level. With the number of women in government decreasing, we want to empower women to apply for appointments to reach gender equality on boards and commissions. There is no admittance without prior RSVP. To RSVP visit http://www.cawomenlead.org/event/WalnutCreekAppointments If you have any questions, contact California Women Lead at (916) 551-1920.
This training is free and open to the public. The event is sponsored by the American Association of University Women (AAUW) in Contra Costa County and Junior League East Bay. Women are underrepresented in government. Learn how to get involved at the local and state level to start turning this around.
