The Evanston Community Foundation (ECF) announces its Public Service Challenge training workshop from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, October 15 at the Joseph E. Hill Education Center, 1500 McDaniel Avenue, Evanston. The Public Service Challenge (PSC) seeks to give potential candidates and campaign workers a strong basis of essential knowledge to be effective public servants with real practical skills and knowledge about running effective local campaigns.
 
Jennifer Moran, Director of Leadership Evanston, says, “The April 2017 election will have a large number of open seats in District 65, District 202 and the City of Evanston. The PSC provides crucial information to understand the roles, the election law, and the nuts and bolts of running a campaign.”
 
PSC is open to any interested citizen wishing to learn more about how to be a candidate or how to run an effective campaign.  Presented by a coalition of civic-minded organizations: Evanston Community Foundation, League of Women Voters, NAACP, Evanston Chamber of Commerce, and District 65 PTA Council; this workshop aims to enhance community engagement and effective governance.
 
The workshop costs $30 and includes lunch.  For more information contact Jennifer Moran at moran@evanstonforever.org or call 847-492-0990. Information is also available at ECF’s website www.evanstonforever.org.  Registration is open until Wednesday, October 12, 2016.
