CCRE Workshop: Local Government & Community
Interested in learning more about local government and how to get involved in politics at the local level? In partnership with Pepperdine University’s Davenport Institute for Public Engagement and Civic Leadership, C.A.R.’s Center for California Real Estate (CCRE) presents an educational opportunity for C.A.R. members with an opportunity to earn a professional certificate. This series will be offered virtually and is free for C.A.R. members.
Local governments and communities coexist in a unique relationship, that when healthy, can lead to successful partnership and projects. However, it is not always easy to understand how local government works, where the funding comes from, what the major issues are right now, and how you, as a community member, can get involved. In this dynamic, 6-week online professional certificate program, the Davenport Institute team will guide you through a deep dive into local government basics, funding, the relationship between community and local government, hot button issues, and ways to get involved in your local government & community.
The series will be offered twice in 2023. Sessions will occur weekly:
· May 9 – June 13 | Tuesdays, 2 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
· Oct. 4 – Nov. 8 | Wednesdays, 2 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
