Workshop for Those Thinking of Running in the 2018 Election & Those Who Want to Ask the Right Questions of Candidates

Excellence in local government demands both knowledgeable candidates and an engaged, proactive citizenry. Come join two seasoned politicians with 20 plus years of experience for a community engagement and candidate readiness workshop! Whether you are thinking of running for office or you care about electing the best candidates that will be shaping the future of your community, this workshop is for you. Invest just a few hours to get educated and enjoy an interactive discussion as together we explore:

  • What are the roles and responsibilities of local government and its elected officials?
  • How do we attract and elect the best people for the job?
  • What are some attributes that are vital in a local leader?
  • What do I need to take into consideration before putting my name forward?

Challenge yourself to deepen your understanding about what it takes to sustain these services. Set your criticisms and past experience aside and bring a healthy dose of creative curiosity.

All this excitement takes place at Castlegar Community Forum at 445 – 13th Avenue in The City of Castlegar on Monday, August 27 from 4:30 to 8:30 pm. Light refreshments will be served. Mark it on your calendar now!
