Event Description:
The River Heights Chamber is partnering with the Hastings Area Chamber, along with the Minnesota Retailers Association and Velocity Public Affairs, to bring you this new, educational leadership series!

This four-part educational series is perfect for anyone who wants to expand their knowledge of civic affairs. Whether your experience with government is limited to voting for elected officials or you lobby your representatives on a weekly basis, this program will walk you through a comprehensive, non-partisan, grassroots experience at the local, state and federal level. This program will challenge participants to stretch their knowledge on all levels of government while learning from and networking with other business people and influential leaders.

Individual Benefits: Develop a great network of individuals who play an active role in the business community; become a more effective and influential leader at work by understanding the process of civic affairs; and learn transferable tools for your professional tool box.

Employer Benefits: Gain company exposure, and develop a strong employee who understands civic affairs and increases their leadership talent within the organization.

Community Benefits: Support active participation in the community, and further engage the local talent in grassroots initiatives on all levels of government.
