2015 Commissions Training Program
Liberty Hill will be launching its 2015 Commissions Training Program with a full-day training focused on Los Angeles County Commissions.
This session will gather community leaders from across sectors interested in serving on an appointed public commission. Participants will gain an understanding of the importance of county-commission decision making for building equity for all LA County residents, and will walk away with a clear sense of what the opportunities for commission service are, what it takes to get appointed, and how they can best leverage strategies for accomplishing equity outcomes once seated. Throughout the day, sessions will be facilitated by well-known county advocates who have served on county commissions, worked with county elected, and staffed county agencies.
April 17, 2015
9:30am - 4:30pm
Cost to participate is $250.
Look out for applications in January!
Some scholarships will be available.

2nd Commissions Training Program for Grassroots Leaders
With a near 40-year track record of investment and training among LA’s diverse community leadership, Liberty Hill Foundation is launching its 2nd Commissions Training Program for Grassroots Leaders.
Appointees trained by the program will not only be prepared to meet their day-to-day responsibilities as commissioners, but also bring fresh thinking and innovative solutions to agency deliberations and decision making and help renew confidence in government. Participants will benefit from opportunities to interact with experienced current and past advocate commissioners and effective, knowledgeable community organizations. Participants will engage in opportunities for learning, networking, placement preparation, and technical support and mentoring with inside and outside advocates from the city, the county, and beyond.
Space is limited. The cohort will consist of 12 to 15 individuals. Those selected commit to interact in movement-building work to bring about more equitable decision-making on the City and County of Los Angeles appointed boards and commissions.
Informational webinars regarding the training will be hosted on January 29, February 18 and March 5.
