NEW: Get Involved! A Local Government Capacity Building Program


Have you wanted to run for office, but you don’t know how? Are you interested in decision making in your community, but you aren’t sure how to get on a local board?  Would you like to better understand your community and spend as little as 3 hours a month exercising good local government?  Would you or someone you know like to have a positive impact in their Town/Village/City? 

STC is excited to announce a new training opportunity at the 2020 Regional Leadership Conference!  For the first time, STC is inviting interested members of the community to attend the RLC and participate in educational classes to:
                 - prepare for service on local appointed boards (Planning, Zoning, Historic Preservation),
                 - gain expertise on the varied roles and procedures in local government
                 - become aware of the interactions between NYS and local laws, and
                 - better understand the process of ‘getting on the ballot’ for local elections. 

This is STC’s first preparatory training event and a “soft” kick-off for this local government capacity building project.  STC is opening our multi-track training program to individuals interested in getting involved in their community.  STC is also working with Corning Foundation and Appalachian Regional Commission on a similar innovative project to provide training, skills and opportunities for experience to individuals interested in serving on local non-profit boards.  

Register for our conference and make sure to attend the very first class of the day, labeled: “Get Involved: Learn how to run for office, join a board and/or be appointed”.   At the conclusion of this one hour introductory class, individual participants can spend the rest of the day attending classes marked with a red check mark . These educational training sessions are rich in information on making informed decisions and understanding local government issues.
