The Evanston Community Foundation’s Leadership Evanston program presents the Public Service Challenge (PSC), a non-partisan one day workshop created to provide practical information on campaigning and holding office in Evanston. The workshop takes place Dec. 6 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Joseph E. Hill Education Center, 1500 McDaniel Ave. The workshop fee is $30 and includes lunch. Some scholarships are available.
Other civic organizations partnering in the PSC include ETHS Parents Engaged, Evanston/Skokie PTA Council, League of Women Voters Evanston, Latino Resources, and the Evanston Chamber of Commerce.
The PSC brings together a variety of experts and leaders to share their knowledge on the local election process and topics such as nominating petitions, organizing campaign committees, legal requirements for public office, fund-raising, election laws, school district budgets and the relationship between elected officials and administrative leadership.
