"Advocacy that Works, Outreach that Connects, Elections that Empower" is the theme for Saturday morning’s four-part session
Los Angeles CA: On Saturday, May 12th, at 9:00 am, EmpowerLA’s Leadership Academy is hosting a hands-on empowerment session at Hollywood’s City Hall that includes workshops on “Getting Heard in City Hall” and “Getting Good Press.”
EmpowerLA’s General Manager, BongHwan “BH” Kim will be hosting the GM’s Roundtable with the City of LA’s Chief Administrative Officer, Miguel Santana. They’ll be talking about LA’s budget and the delivery of City Services.
Jerry Kvasnicka will introduce the Election Plan for the upcoming Neighborhood Council elections, scheduled to take place regionally throughout the City of LA beginning in August.
Stephen Box will present Citywide Outreach Plan for Election Season along with strategies for individual neighborhood councils as they identify candidates and engage stakeholders.
Enci Box will unlock “The Mysteries of Social Media” and will introduce strategies for connecting Neighborhood Council websites and newsletters. Get your Klout on and put Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and Constant Contact to work as part of your communications strategy.
EmpowerLA’s Spring Semester consists of workshops throughout the City of LA that are free and open to the public, designed for individual members of the community as well as Neighborhood Council leaders.
Empower Yourself workshops are hands-on opportunities that feature topics such as Public Speaking, Social Media, Powerful Partnerships, Group Dynamics, Successful Advocacy, and Parliamentary Procedure. The tools and strategies presented in these workshop are designed for personal growth.
Empower Your Community workshops present tools and strategies for improving the effectiveness of Neighborhood Councils and include Advocacy Campaigns, Media Strategies, Outreach Tools, Neighborhood Networks, Communications, Wordpress Websites, Newsletter Strategies, and Managing Mailing Lists.
Empower LA workshops are hosted by General Manager (GM) BongHwan “BH” Kim and feature City Hall leaders at the GM's Roundtable. These are great opportunities for Neighborhood Councils to engage stakeholders in face-to-face sessions with the people responsible for running the City and delivering City Services.
Some workshops are very specific to elections, from the election plan to outreach strategies, while others address opportunities to work together in the neighborhood, such as Community Time Banking and Community Gardening.
Through it all, there’s something for everybody, including those who have been with neighborhood councils since the beginning and newcomers who share a desire to participate in their government and make it more responsive to local needs.
