ARTICS is hosting an event for anyone who might consider getting involved in the next trustee election, either as a candidate or as a campaign volunteer. This is an opportunity to meet former and current CBE trustees, possibly trustees from other districts and former candidates. When citizens get involved, they strengthen our local democracy.
The format will be a social mix and mingle, so there will be opportunity to speak face to face and to meet new people. We hope that attendees will be able to learn more about the role of trustees, what the job requires and maybe find people from their area of the city who would be willing to work together on a campaign. ARTICS has no interest in selecting or supporting candidates.
This meeting is open to the public, so there is no need to pre-register. We will meet at the Crossroads community hall on October 22, 2012 from 7pm – 9pm. There will be an opportunity to indicate interest in future meetings, which will require registration.
